About Emma Higgins

Basically, for me , it’s all about the colour.
From an early age colour peaked my attention, the brighter the better. I noticed how much happier I was to be painting in colours with paint and pastels as opposed to in pencil.


I get all my inspiration from the colour I see all around me, It can be in nature or in man-made objects. Either way, if its colourful , it just grabs my attention, I see colour before I see anything else. I am immediately drawn to it and it fills me with joy. I see a colour combination I love and It makes want to recreate it .

My vision is to create abstract art, drawing inspiration from my life experience that inspires joy in the viewer and brings life to contemporary interior or family spaces. I have developed a keen interest in how colour can play an important role in our daily lives. My mission is to spread the joy of colour where I can.

I’m using soooo many colours right now – it’s been taking forever to find what I need so I have them laid out like this now 🙈🙈🙈 these are my absolute fav paints with THE BEST colour pigments – I mix them with golden mediums and each other – some are open ( which dry slower ) and others are not and some are the new #goldensoflatacrylic Matt acrylics – you can’t see the white in this pic – it’s the one I use the most believe it or not ! And it’s a big tub ! #goldenacrylics #goldenopenacrylic hope you are all reaching the midweek in good form ! Thanks @goldenpaints for making such fabulous paint ! X
