You may not have been born when these memorable faces graced the silver screen, but I’m sure every one of these Emma Mount paintings are recognizable to you. Featuring iconic movie females like Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, the bride from Bride of Frankenstein and Wednesday from The Addams Family, these portraits perfectly capture the likeness of each respective actress while also exuding a classic, timeless quality. Perhaps it’s the nostalgia talking, but these paintings have a magnetism and soul that illustrations from other artists seem to lack. That ineffable quality makes me want to buy up every one of Mount's portraits.

Those familiar with Emma Mount's work will notice that she enjoys painting on circular canvases, further differentiating her creations from her peers.’ Her affinity for vintage horror films is also evident when browsing through her impressive and eclectic portfolio.
