A Wimbledon artist has teamed up with a coffee shop to host an art exhibition.

Emily Harris, 28, will be featuring her artwork at Saucer & Cup in Wimbledon Park until August 1.

'Mother' brings together around 10 paintings that follows Emily's vivid style and joyful use of colour.

The exhibition will explore 'the complicated relationship with nature', provoking a number of questions for the audience to connect with each piece.

This is Emily's first exhibition after starting her self-taught studio practice a year and a half ago in alignment with her career as an arts marketer in cultural organisations such as the Royal Academy of Arts and currently, the British Library.

Lee, Founder of Saucer & Cup commented: “Saucer & Cup is delighted to connect with like-minded individuals through a mutual love for art.

"We are looking forward to seeing the coffee shop develop as a creative space in collaboration with Emily."

Speaking about her exhibition, Emily said: “Our relationship with nature is critical. Mother aims to engage people with a series of challenging questions with a joyful set of paintings as the entry point.

"I believe joy in communication, particularly visual communication, gives people hope that we can change for the better."
