Gay Emmerson

"I am basically a landscape/seascape artist with a keen interest in physics and maths. Also in plants. As an artist I am constantly evolving, and my seacapes have developed into studies of coastal scrub, and, more recently, studies of the brilliant flowers that thrive along Australia's coast."
