Emerson Mayes is a Harrogate born artist who is enjoyed a growing reputation for a fresh, honest and uncontrived approach to his work.
With his roots firmly in the British landscape tradition, Emerson's work reflects his obvious passion for this vast and complex subject. Although he strives to achieve a direct response, he is never tied down by the 'topographical' elements in the landscape. He says, "It's the emotional reaction and that sense of place that's most important in a finished piece, not whether a tree is in exactly the right place."
In 1995 he won ‘Young Artist of the Year’ Award, and has since won numerous other major art awards. His work can be found in both private & public collections worldwide.
