Emma Wright and Her Zest For Life

Emma Wright and Her Zest for Life

In this issue we meet artist Emma Wright, who had no intention of being an artist — but art wasn’t going to let her escape that easily. Fate and the paintbrushes conspired to ensure she lost her job as a brand strategist in the graphic design industry and she played out that old cliché of discovering her passion, a silver lining made up of shape, form and acrylic paints, while she was wondering what to do with the extra time she suddenly had on her hands.


Emma Wright stands between two works from her ‘Wright Without Thinking’ collection.


Her studio is based at  her Waiheke Island home.


Juggling motherhood with creating art and keeping up with the administrative side of business is tough but, Emma says, she has found her calling. She produces both small pieces such as the ones behind her and large-scale works. The painting behind her is called ‘Family’ and the small artwork with a black flower is called, quite simply, ‘Black flower’. For more from Emma pick up our latest issue and check out her website.
