Emily Porter-Salmon is best known as a portrait painter. She does not have a single style as such, but prefers to experiment in a number of allied styles, selecting that most appropriate for the task or sitter at hand. She finds the human figure and face to be her most stimulating sources of inspiration. Dealing primarily with this subject, her work combines the traditional with the contemporary, sometimes using paint alongside less conventional media to produce arresting visual results.

Born in Birmingham UK in 1983, she studied English Language and Literature at St Hilda's College, Oxford. She then studied History of Art at the University of Birmingham, receiving an MA with distinction in 2007 and completing her PhD thesis in 2011 on the early works of David Hockney.

Her work has appeared in numerous prestigious exhibitions, including the Singer and Friedlander/ Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters annual exhibition and the BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery. In 2006, she became the youngest person ever to be elected a member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.
