From an early age Gemma was inspired by her surroundings, particularly nature and botanicals. At 13, she was fortunate to travel to India with her Gramps to meet her Great Gran. Observing and absorbing the vibrancy of the country, the textiles and the architecture, this sparked her passion for travel. It was at this time, colour, pattern and texture became an integral part of Gemma's thinking.
Driven by her love of the handmade, Gemma creates artwork through drawings, paintings, and mixed media for Screen Printing and Digital/CAD techniques.
