Horse Art Exhibition

A special Art Exhibition is being held in Scone (27 km up the New England Highway from Muswellbrook) as part of the Scone and Upper Hunter Horse Festival. It features original graphite and soft pastel art works of horses by the talented young Australian Artist Emma Llewelyn. The Exhibition is in the Scone Visitor Centre, and is open free of charge every day from 9am til 5pn up to the 15th of  May.

Articles about her Art Exhibition have appeared in the Muswellbrook Chronicle newspaper on Friday 8 May, and the Scone Advocate on Thursday 7 May.

Emma, aged 21, was raised in Muswelbrook in the Upper Hunter Region of NSW Australia, and is currently studying a double degree in arts and fine arts at Wollongong University. She has exhibited in various Art Exhibitions across the state of NSW, and she has sold many of her works of art which now grace private home collections and are on show in various commercial buildings.

She recently traveled to the Arrowfield Horse Stud to find inspiration from their fine horses for her art work.

As well as animals, Emma also likes creating timeless and breathtaking custom portraits of people, from the very  young to the elderly. She is available to do art works for any person in Australia or overseas who would like a portrait done of themselves, a relative, or a pet. These will become cherished heirlooms that go beyond photographic reproduction to reveal the emotion and the spirit of the subject.

"The greatest joy of my work is to watch a blank sheet of paper come to life, sparkling with essence of the personality I have captured. Be it the innocence of childhood, the beauty of young adulthood, the wisdom and experience of the elderly or the spirit of animals. "

Commissioning a custom portrait is a truly unique way to capture your memories. Portraits are timeless, personalised gifts that will memorialise your loved ones throughout the years. The process starts by contacting Emma, discussing the sort of portrait you would prefer, and sending a photo of the subject .

Emma's contact details are on her website:-  http://www.emmallewelynart.com/  This website exhibits some of recent art works. I am very proud of her art work, and very proud that she is my daughter.  (The paintings are some of Emma's artwoks on display in Scone.)
