BUCKMASTER, Emma

1957 - ?

As Emma Elizabeth Stanier, she was born at Aldershot, Hampshire on 13 May 1957, daughter of Field Marshal Sir John Wilfred Stanier (6 October 1925–10 November 2007) and his wife Cicely Constance née Lambert (born 8 March 1930), who married at Chelmsford, Essex in 1955. Emma married at Kensington, London in 1983, Simon John Buckmaster and paints under the name of Emma Buckmaster. Emma studied at Exeter University 1976-1979, Essex University 2000-2003 and printmaking at Cambridge School of Art 2006-2009. Emma’s atmospheric prints are inspired by the East Anglian landscape, fishing boats drawn up on the beach, a sea mist, glimpsed figures on the shoreline, the east wind and ancient oak trees introduce a sense of nostalgia and memory revisited. The prints are created using a limited palette and complex etching and relief techniques. Influences include the work of the early British landscape artists as well as the etchers and engravers who translated their work to print. She has exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions; Norwich Castle and Art in Action, Waterperry, Oxford. She has her studio at Moores Farm, Felsham, Bury St Edmund's, Suffolk. www.emmabuckmaster.com
