Emily Gillmor (b. 1960), Anna’s Spring Garden, 2014, screenprint, collection of the artist

This is the first print Seaby’s great-granddaughter Emily Gillmor printed at the Institute of Education, where she is currently the Printmaker in Residence. Emily followed in the family tradition and studied Drawing and Painting with Printmaking at Edinburgh College of Art. However, Emily has tended to steer clear of animal wildlife for her subject matter, preferring instead to observe flowers, kitchenalia and other interesting still life.

Emily focuses on silk screen prints, gouache paintings and drawings. In recent years Emily has been experimenting with more texture in her work, incorporating different mediums to create emotional and evocative work.
