Bastion Mews - Emmeline North

Emmeline North is a multi-disciplined artist and designer. Her work is influenced by both the built and natural environments, combining architectural forms with fine botanical illustrations.

She first began painting murals and decorative artwork for commercial and residential interiors around her home town of Leeds in the 1990s, and later trained in surface pattern design. Her growing portfolio of public art projects span both 2D and 3D surfaces and can now be found in Leeds, Batley, Dewsbury, Birmingham and York.

Emmeline's new commission for Hereford is inspired by the floodplain meadows that straddle the River Wye, juxtaposed with the iconic structure of Canary Bridge, symbolising the community's battle to retain the meadow and ensure nature retains its place in the city.
