Emma was educated privately in Scotland and England before going on to study at The Ruskin School of Fine Art and Drawing at Oxford. She arrived at a time when a thorough grounding in the necessary disciplines of painting and drawing were central to the course.
She has worked in various figurative fields and primarily forged her reputation as a painter through her portrait painting. Her paintings are in numerous collections, and her clients come from all walks of life – from medicine, law and business to theatre, sport and academia.
In 2003 Emma was awarded The Garrick/Milme prize for her portrait of the actor Timothy West CBE, which is now on permanent display in The Garrick.
About four years ago Emma decided on a change of focus and became fascinated with horses.
Emma Kennaway is now doing limited edition archival prints, however for international distribution please enquire through The Bridgeman Art Library.
