MEET EMMA PETITT
CONNECT WITH EMMA
My name is Emma Petitt, and I am a Brit living in Southern Spain. My partner Paul, our 2 rescue dogs and numerous chickens, ducks and I live in the mountains surrounded by nature.
I took up painting 3 years ago after our move to Spain. I certainly had an epiphany moment, having not picked up a paintbrush in over 25 years. Even though I went to art school in the 80’s and early 90’s, I never studied painting. It did not take me long to realize my creative passion laid with faces, figures and people. I love to
portray emotion, hidden memories, stories and lives. I will never grow tired of painting people, they
have so much to tell.
I took the plunge, gave up my job and became a full time artist in 2017…and here I am now. I have now been involved in numerous exhibitions in Spain and Online. My work has found new homes in- The USA, Canada, Britain, Germany, Holland, Australia and Spain.
I am finding my own way artistically, every day, I may not always know the correct terminology, I may not always use the correct tool for the job, but I am finding my own techniques, my own style and my own identity. And it is never too late to start! I work in Acrylic Paint, in an expressive, painterly manner, I love colour, texture and working BIG!
