Emma Hunt rekindled her love affair with painting just over two years ago, motivated by the local landscapes here in Cumbria. Beginning as a coping mechanism for pain, painting became a source of therapy. Inspired by other local artists, she worked to create opportunities to showcase the local artists/photographers in Cumbria. She also teaches and volunteers in the community -pastel workshops for mental health and well-being.
