About the Tutor

Emma Gardner is an artist, printmaker and educator. She creates original artwork using collage, photography and printmaking processes. 

Emma’s practice is shaped by her response to places, questioning ideas of space, concealment and transition through printmaking. Her works often evoke a sense of stillness and silence within ambiguous spaces.

Emma studied Fine Art at De Montfort University, Leicester. After graduating in 2012 she joined Leicester Print workshop to help facilitate her practice and was awarded Artist in Residence in 2015. Emma is currently teaches a diverse range of printing techniques at LPW. She exhibits nationally and internationally and has a wealth of experience working on creative projects with community groups, schools, museums and galleries. Alongside her practice Emma works as a Learning Officer at Compton Verney Art gallery and Park, where she pursues her passion for learning outside the classroom.
