Artist

Samantha Louise Emery is a multimedia contemporary artist based out of London, England and Bodrum, Turkey. Her artworks span over 30 years and include various traditional mediums, recently integrated with digital multimedia.

“I am on a journey to rediscover the source of a woman’s power, the Feminine Spirit and what it means to be a woman in today’s evolving world. My portrait series IKONA | Mirrored Interior honours ten women alive today who have inspired me on this journey. Using digital drawing, hand embroidery, painting and photo compositing, I followed an intuitive process where I combined shape and colour to develop textures that interpret each subject’s unique voice and presence. I feel privileged to live in a time of change, when women are asserting their Feminine selves and inspiring others to rise to their highest potential.”

Portrait Photography ( 2017 - 2018 ) of Samantha Louise Emery was photographed by Carlos Alonso

Process and Promotional Videos ( 2017 - 2018 ) for IKONA were directed and edited by Carlos Alonso
