About

Hi, my name is Emily. Welcome to my shop!

I am a self-taught artist, who loves creating art and exploring different mediums. My instagram page, @emilyflaniganartist, is where you will find all sorts of examples of my work from over the years.

In 2014 the GHOST SERIES was born. Inspired on a random Tuesday, in the back streets of suburban Melbourne, I came across a view that I knew I had to paint. A series of moody black and white landscapes followed. I have continued to focus on developing and experimenting with this theme. in which I use many layers of thinly diluted acrylic paint to create a delicate and diaphanous effect. As with any exploration, the artworks I create today are not the same as when I first embarked on this journey, and that is one of the things I love about creating art. Other than choosing the colours to start with and a few references, I try not get stuck in what I think the piece should look like, and instead follow where it's taking me.

The plan for 2024 - keep painting, keep learning and keep exploring!
