Emma Gale

Emma Gale celebrates a huge love for colour, shape and texture. Her work is layers and layers of paint, mark makings of good and bad mistakes are all part of the the visual landscape of her canvas. Her subjects are everyday people doing everyday things and she takes inspiration from other cultures and their daily rituals and routines.
Between 1991-1993 Emma lived in Cairo, Egypt where she established the Tukul Craft Workshop in Cairo. A non-profit organization set up to train Sudanese refugees the techniques and skills in textile screen printing and design. Traditional African designs and patterns were created and a range of products including bags, belts, cushions and t shirts were made.
