Lovers Eye #40
Oil on card

Frame size: 9 x 11.5 cm (3.5" x 4.5")

Emma Mount (UK) was born with a pencil in her hand, and spent a lot of her childhood scribbling away furiously. Her early teens were lived in the 80's, and she was hugely influenced by all the exotic women in pop videos like Duran Duran's. She loved Nagel's artwork like the Rio cover, and she also loved all the airbrushed Syd Brak women that were everywhere at that time. She used to draw all sorts, but started gravitating towards sketching from photos of fascinating women she saw in her mother’s fashion magazines or her teen music magazines.

Her icons at the time were strong glamorous women like Debbie Harry and Kate Bush (and glam men like Bowie and Adam Ant). At the same time her fascination with the 'dark side' of life started to show itself as she discovered and grew up on Hammer Horror, the Addams Family, the Munsters, and started to build a collection of ghost/horror books that would also influence her sketches.
