    Hi all,

    I’m looking for some help and I’m hoping someone might be able to shed some light on who the artist of these two paintings might be.

    I recently purchased the paintings at a liquidation sale and there was no information given on the artist. Both paintings are small oils on board of boat scenes and are signed on the back. Unfortunately, I can’t make out the signature and I wonder if anyone recognises the artist.

    I like the pictures and am planning to get them framed but before I do, I would be very interested in finding out any information on the artist so all possible leads, suggestions, ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time and any help.

    "Emma Copley" to my eye. Both are marine landscapes.

    Also possibly Erma for the given name?

    Hi Debora,

    I think you're absolutely right, it's Emma Copley! I've had a look on the internet and there's an Emma Copley based in the UK who's work is strikingly similar to my paintings.

    Thank you very much for your help. I've been trying to find out who the artist is for ages. I've sent her email and hopefully she'll get back to me to confirm.

    Thanks again,
