Emma Frettingham

My name is Emma Frettingham  I left full time teaching a few years ago and I’m now lucky enough to spend my time drawing pictures of the wildlife I love.  I first picked up pastels two years ago during lockdown and haven’t looked back since. I am fascinated by anything to do with the natural world and have drawn and painted all my life. I now combine my passions in the artwork I create. It has never been more important than now to step up and protect our planet.  I try my best to do this through my everyday life but joining in with events such as this helps me feel that I’m making a valuable contribution.  Invicta’s ethos fits my own beliefs like a glove. Through their efforts the planet is a better place to be. With their help, future generations might then grow up valuing their environment and caring for the wondrous array of creatures within it.  This is why I want to take part in their exhibition.
