About Emma Mclachlan

Emma is a contemporary Scottish artist whose paintings identify strongly with Scotland, its people and its coastal views.


Emma grew up in Troon where she was heavily influenced by the landscape surrounding her, painting many scenes of the golf course and seascapes looking out towards Arran. Having began her art career painting landscapes and seascapes she then became inspired by the movement and architecture of the cities. Enjoying the busy scenes they presented and capturing the movement of people going about their daily life.

Painting mainly in oils, Emma layers the paint gradually to build up vibrancy and depth to each piece. While also using eye catching perspectives and techniques, she aims to capture an interesting contemporary feel. 

As a framer Emma has complete control over the style and feel of every painting. After training to professionally frame she now enjoys the process of selecting the right style of frames to further help convey a depth to her paintings and draw your eyes in to the scene. 

Emma is a member of the Society of Scottish Artists. While also being represented in Galleries and exhibiting at various locations in the UK throughout the year. 

As an artist Emma continually seeks to develop her style and create captivating art with a distinctive mood and energy.
