Fine Art Portraits

Fine Art Portraits can take place either in Emily’s Lime Kiln or Emily’s studio.

These are more considered portraits where you will liaise with Emily to capture a particular look through use of background, styling and outfit. The resulting portraits are totally unique!

Backgrounds can vary from a hand-painted canvas backdrop, a white wall or a set that has been created specially to create a mood.

In the Vogue image here Emily used a canvas backdrop and simple silk black top plus back-lighting to create more of a fashion style look.

In the Grand Master style portraits below Emily had a set designer who ‘dressed’ the lime kiln with an antique wooden floor, Vintage console, & jug of tulips to suggest the backgrounds of the Old Dutch Masters paintings. Emily accessorised with an original Georgian silk dress, hair pieces and an antique ruff. And we had amazing hair designs by the very talented Gemma Louise Williams.

Other themes Emily has done in the Old Lime Kiln have been Vintage Circus and Fairy Tales, the latter which produced a body of work that Emily exhibited in Taunton and London in 2019.
