A PAINTER FOR ALL SEASONS

Emma Sergeant is a wonderful artist. I have had the privilege of knowing her for over three decades, and watched her grow in stature, scaling heights in the world of painting, the most recent success being a retrospective held in the prestigious Museo Della Contrada Della Tartuca in Siena, Italy. I am certain it was a triumph.

Her versatility and craft are astonishing. Her ability to work in many mediums and with varied forms keep reminding those of us from all around the world what a talented, creative artist she is as she continues to grow in skill and stature.

What I have most admired about Emma is her bravery to always seek new horizons and switch from one medium to another, one continent to a new one, one subject to a totally different one. Nothing ever fazes her.

And on top of all that, I consider her to be a loving friend and someone who deserves all the accolades her work inspires. I salute her in this brief missive and wish her every success with her further achievements in the future.
