Emmylou Yeomans was born in England, 1979, to a French mother and German father. Yeomans studied Art Foundation at Hertfordshire University & completed a BA HONS in Middlesex University. She is a London based painter who travels the world, gaining inspiration through use of unique accommodation-locations as pop-up studios. Her freedom of travel and constantly being in transit provide both motivation and inspiration allowing Yeomans to create in solitude each day, for hours at a time.
Yeomans uses water-soluble oils on paper and canvases, as she loves the way it dries to a slightly different shade, much like life changes to produce slightly unexpected outcomes to what was first applied. She mainly paints figures and skies because, for her, they evoke both limitless changing potential and freedom. Painting on large canvases is her favourite. For Yeomans, the overall effect of this is quite consuming as it allows her to experience excitement while adding extra freedom to her creative process.
The drips in Yeomans' pieces are integral to her concept as they explain the tears: raw, vulnerable and deep emotions she feels when creating a beautiful piece, "Beautiful things get created through pain". Having gone through severe depression at the end of 2016, she threw herself into her craft and created rituals that changed her life completely, healing the condition through change and lifestyle. "I want the viewer's response to my artwork to be one of self empowerment, passion and inspiration to live fully and be true to who they are".
Yeomans is currently compiling a large portfolio of work for exhibitions and art fairs in London and New York.
