EMMA BORG - MY STORY SO FAR!
Having moved to the beautiful Island of Gozo in 2001 with her family, Emma has really enjoyed and been inspired from her surroundings. Although Emma has always been influenced from an early age in an artistic way, her passion for painting really developed here. Self taught, this has enabled Emma the freedom to really experiment and discover different techniques with textures and methods to create her artwork. Having worked within the interior design industry her work sometimes shows her desire for fine lines and artworks pleasing to the eyes.
Encouraged by the local councils and the Ministry for Gozo providing such impressive venues to exhibit, this has taken her to new heights with exposing her work to the public. the results have been more than a decade of positivity and sales that have reached all over the world. Locally Emma has regular art exhibitions and her smaller pieces can been seen permanently at Ta Nikol Gallery, Victoria, Gozo. Her friends Emma Morgan and Abi Macleod Clark who run the gallery have contributed to her successful journey and she can often be found at other artisan events with them. Emma will continue to create and show her work as long as she possibly can.
NOW A NEW PHASE IN EMMA'S LIFE - 2020 CREATIONS!
For a number of reasons Emma now has relocated back to her birthplace of Devon UK. Although the island of Gozo gave her the opportunity to begin her journey with her art, she is now determined to continue here in UK.
The unfortunate timing with the current Covid 19 pandemic has made challenges in exposure and promoting, with most galleries closed and arts and craft fayre's cancelled.
So reliance on exposure from past exhibitions, friends and clients plus the power of the internet, Emma will continue on creating her artworks from her new home.
But she will be forever grateful to Gozo, her friends, family and Abi Macleod, Emma Morgan at the gallery for all the encouragement and support over all the years. It was a real blast...
