About Emily Stracey
Emily exhibits in galleries across the country and undertakes commissions of people’s pets.
At the age of 20, venturing on an Art school trip to Paris Emily believed she met Jim Morrison reincarnated as a plump ginger and white cat sat on his own grave being stroked by women.
This experience fuelled Emily’s fascination for the feline species and from then on she made cats; gingers, tabbies, fluffy, fat, black, white, pointy she just couldn’t stop!
Although she does endeavour to make other animals too and anything else that she might be able to morph from clay, fabric or paint!
Emily enjoys family life in sunny Bournemouth. She works in her garden workshop closely guarded by her two tabbies Jazzy and Jeff. In between juggling children, cats, not sleeping, dust, washing, teaching and building sandcastles she loves to draw and make.
If you would like your favourite furry friend immortalised in clay, Emily can work from photographs supplied. Contact the gallery for more details.
