Artist’s Work Example Title:

Emma Sidwell




Emma is an artist & jeweller living in New Mills working in pen and watercolour.

She works mostly from her imagination, using detailed penwork and bright gemlike colours to depict fantastical worlds and their stories, signing her work 'Ellia'. 


Influenced by her many years of agoraphobia, her universes are theatrical, magical, sometimes hostile and Dystopian, and permeated with dark whimsy.

Only recently has she been able to show her work publicly, with a successful solo exhibition last year & now as a member of the Peak District Artisans.

She also makes intricate resin jewellery, available at this Gallery, incorporating elements of her pictures within the resin, creating wearable art.
