Emma Prill

Emma Prill (Bachelor of Visual Arts) is living in Omokoroa, New Zealand. Emma paints and creates forms from canvas, assembling compositions to encompass vibrant colours and multi-textural forms.

Emma’s work is influenced from her travels. Weaving memories and imagery from flower markets in India, Frangipani trees in the jungle of Sri Lanka and tropical gardens and reefs in Fiji. She also gathers inspiration from the breath-taking beauty of the natural world that surrounds her in New Zealand. The floral language has been welcomed throughout many eras and cultures.

Emma is interested in this rich history and explores the symbolism and connection to flowers and how hidden meanings reside in their presence. “Some of my greatest joys in life come from the visual and physical experiences in nature. The way the sunshine caresses the hill tops or the trees frame an ocean peep. My flower garden artworks represent an ideal view. A window into a garden that will always be flourishing, a place to escape and rejuvenate in.”
