Emma Windsor-Liscombe is an interdisciplinary artist with a practice based in painting and drawing.

She creates narrative scenes and portraits. In her work, she is currently building a contemporary mythology, based on themes related to nostalgia, trauma, and addiction. This on-going narrative is told through the lives of women known and unknown, often with the recurring image of specific family members, and imagery from her personal symbolic dictionary. Emma’s work also explores ancient myth and drama, also viewed through female characters. These themes extend into her work in portraiture and landscape, in which human and ecological legacies are documented through paint, chalk, or graphite.
