Emma Colbert - Bluebell Foxtrot.

We hope you've all had a lovely long Bank Holiday weekend and don't feel sick after eating too many chocolate eggs! Thank goodness the weather has brightened up for us. It feels like Spring has finally sprung so in honour of this, this week's "Artwork of the Week", is a lovely springtime artwork by a new artist to Union Art, Emma Colbert.

Bluebells transform the countryside in springtime, creating carpets of intense blue and giving a delicate scent during April and May. This Signed Limited Edition Print by Emma Colbert is titled Bluebell Foxtrot and as the name suggests features a fox on the prowl through a sea of bluebells. The eyes of the fox are focused on the viewer and the early morning sunlight can be seen glistening through the trees behind resulting in a striking and beautiful piece of art. With an incredibly low total edition size of just 88, this Signed Limited Edition Print makes a great collector's item.

Based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Emma Colbert works full time as an artist. She graduated from Kent Institute of Art and Design as an illustrator in 2007, and has worked on hundreds of portraits, produced fine art for galleries throughout the North and illustrated several books. Her love for animals started at a young age and has continued to inspire her work ever since.

Emma Colbert's art can be seen in galleries throughout the UK and she regularly exhibits as a member of the Pastel Society of Ireland. Emma paints what she loves, including a series of British and Irish wildlife, local landscapes and any figurative scenes which interest her. Emma's work has a realistic sometimes photographic appearance. She works in pastel which gives a softness and vibrancy to her paintings. Pastels are so versatile it’s possible to paint many themes and subjects in the same medium and style.
