Emma Caplin



I was born in London. I studied Theatre Design at Central St. Martin’s College of Art & Design. After graduating, I worked as a Designer and Art Director in Theatre, Film and TV for more than 15 years.

In the late 1990s, I was looking for some artwork to cheer up the kitchen walls of my dull London flat. Unable to find anything suitable, I decided to create something myself and I have developed my way of working ever since.

Specialising in creating bright and bold collages using colourful paper and card, I love the way I can get immediate results. I use scissors to ‘draw’ freehand and play with interesting colour combinations.

I now live in Warwickshire. I have shown my work all over the Midlands: Highlights include the mac in Birmingham, Nuneaton Art Gallery, Croome (National Trust), ‘Warwickshire Open Studios’, ‘Art in the Park’ Leamington Spa, and Warwick Arts Centre as part of ‘Warwickshire Open Studios Autumn Art Fair’.

I produce original collages, as well as digitally printed cards, prints and cushions; all of which feature images of my original artwork.
