Now a highly respected artist who specialises in the Painting of Endangered Birds. I have contacted the Artist who informed me that this watercolour was painted when she lived in Greece for 6 years working with The British School at Athens which is the archaeological institute. In the summer of that year when Emma was in Knossos where she used to go off and paint when she could. Emma later began a bird painter which began when she was travelling around Greece .Thanks to Emma for confirming the provenance of the picture.
