Emima has recently discovered how to tell an individual story through using newspaper as the background for the portraits. This became the foundation of the many portraits she makes, as she believes that what the painting has to say about the person is more important than how well her art skills are presented. She recently said: “I found that being an artist is more than having special skills; it is the ability to portray someone’s story and someone’s character onto paper.” She has found her inner passion for portraiture, experimenting with different techniques and materials became a pleasure.
Emima Coroama is the sister of 3 girls and 5 boys, which have chosen to move to the UK (London) as a family in 2011. This had affected her education in better ways, and has given her bigger opportunities to find her passion; ART. After finishing the last years of High School at Hatch End, she then chose to carry on by joining Art and Design courses at Harrow College. This brought her even more opportunities, where she has opened a pop-up shop, and has been recognized by the Harrow Times. She is now a self-taught commission artist, living with her family while making her aspirations come to life.
