Emelia Hewitt

Emelia is an exciting emerging artist based at Venture Arts with a strong and innovative photography practice.

Emelia is an exciting emerging artist based at Venture Arts with a strong practice using intricate and innovative photographic methods, manipulating digital and analogue images, narratives and histories.

Emelia is inspired by the works and history of Vivian Meier’s found collection of film and images, a seminal, mundane and sumptuous recording of daily life which could easily have been lost.

Emelia records small instances of life and skewers serious photography with comical feeling. Emelia is also currently exploring ways of printing and using analogue methods printing photography onto canvas and fabrics, creating a collection of new historical artefacts.


We are delighted when people want to commission work from us and our artists. This can either be as a group project or an individual artist creating one of their unique pieces for you.
