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.

Live Life In Colour !
