"I'm at my happiness when I'm creating.

I thank my lucky stars that I help people cherish

their memories through my art.

It's my absolute dream to share what I love."


Ft. The New York Dolls, Bettie Page and New York Skyline

A fellow creative designed the amazing artwork for their new upcycled jacket and I was commissioned to paint it.  I used acrylic paint which worked so worked well with the leather. I am so pleased with the finished result and I can't wait to see it worn!




South Shields based artist Emma Warkcup is a born creative who loves to develop beautiful art for the people of North East England and beyond. 


Emma has been running her art business from her home-based studio for the past four years, supplying beautiful bespoke wedding stationery, hand drawn greeting cards, logo design, murals and painted commissions using various mediums.


Emma has had a passion for art for as long as she can remember; her first fingerpainted masterpiece retains pride of place in her mother's kitchen.


Since those formative years, Emma continued her art education at college and university, leading to her attaining a BA Honours Degree in Fashion Design. Her burning desire to share her talents and inspire young children then led to her to qualifying to teach Design and Technology in 2013. 

While teaching Product Design full time, Emma retained her passion for art and design by painting, drawing and making clothes. She also began creating pieces of art for family and friends. 

Following amazing feedback, it gave her the confidence, motivation and drive to begin her own art business; she has never looked back!
