About

Sign up for updates when new pieces are fresh off the easel!

Hi, I'm Emma

I’m Emma Stubbs, an artist based in the North East of Scotland - much of my artwork draws on the big skies, rugged landscape and coast of this area.
I have been painting for over 25 years with the occasional pause for travel, to raise kids and tackle Parkinson's. I live with my two teenagers, partner and a rather neurotic border collie.
In my artistic journey, landscapes and light are my endless inspirations. I convey their magic through oil paintings, bridging past and present. A reflection of our shared human experience, our bond with the land, and our ancestral memories. I aim to remind us of life's fleeting nature and the value of each moment.

PARKINSON'S

I love to paint on a huge scale but as someone with Parkinson’s Disease, I am unable to cope with the physicality of such projects. Now I focus on capturing wild nature on a smaller scale - which is probably much easier to hang in your average house!

Thursday Around Dinner Time…
Once a week, I ponder something to do with living with Parkinson’s and the impact of chronic illness. Be prepared for the frequent sweary bits.
