My first post!
For those of you who don't know me, my name is Emma Vo. I am a Swedish born contemporary artist with a passion for colour, shape and the abstract. I am the artist behind Art by Vo.
Here you'll get to follow me on my journey as an artist and get the latest news from Art by Vo. But first, let me tell you a bit about how I got to where I am today.
When I was little I loved to paint, draw and craft and during my teenage years photography was my passion. Therefore I studied the media programme focusing on photography during secondary school. After secondary school I lived abroad for a few years where I, amongst other things, completed a foundation year in art, media and design at London Metropolitan University, Sir John Cass School of Art in London. It was during the foundation year that I found my passion for abstract art, shapes and colours.
When I returned to Sweden, about 3 years ago, I went through an emotionally challenging period in my private life. To cope with it all I began to experiment with various types of paints and I used my creativity to heal my soul. Painting and creating abstract art became my escape from reality and a way for me to let my emotions run free. It became my therapy and it helped me to become a whole person again. Today painting is my passion and my job. I am blessed that I am able to do what I love.
I paint what I feel with inspiration from nature, the sky, the infinity of space, music and the world. Through my art I want to give the audience a glimpse of what goes on inside my brain, my heart and my soul.
I hope you will follow me on my journey.
Lots of love,
