Emma Gardner

Emma is an artist and printmaker; she joined LPW as a member and volunteer after graduating in 2012 with a Degree in Fine Art from De Montfort University. In 2014 she became a studio volunteer, regularly assisting the studio team with the day to day running of the workshop.

Working largely with photographic printmaking processes, she works both independently and collaboratively, and is currently an Artist in Residence and tutor at Leicester Print Workshop. Alongside her practice she works as a programming officer and gallery assistant at Compton Verney Art Gallery and Park in Warwickshire.

Significant places, constructed or altered dwellings are all themes of inspiration for her practice. Printmaking is a way of visualising and developing those ideas through process, subtly questioning ideas of space, concealment and transition and creating a sense of curiosity.
