Description

About the Artist

Jemma’s practice researches into industrial decline exploring spaces that have been abandoned and left to fall into disrepair. She is interested in recording our heritage before it is obliterated from our landscapes and our past culture becomes lost.

Drawing underpins her practice and informs her printmaking processes. Specialising in etching and stone lithography, these methods resonate with the subjects Jemma comes to find herself documenting.Her work asks us to slow down and consider the buildings that too many of us just walk straight past and ignore.

After completing her MA in Multidisciplinary Printmaking at UWE in 2018 she was elected as a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. Alongside her practice she works as a technical instructor at UWE.
