Gemma Harwood is a British artist who graduated with a BA in Art for Community from the University of Surrey in 2002. In 2004, Gemma was a finalist in the B.P. Portrait Awards held at the National Portrait Gallery in London.
Her most recent artworks incorporate maps which she sculpts and manipulates to form a 3-dimensional tree with stylised branches and leaves. The maps are still left visible and the locations are carefully chosen such as in her London Map Trees. Each artwork is also encased with resin adding a final layer and sealing the fragile maps in place. Gemma will often also utilise gold leaf to add another layer of texture and colour.
