Singing with my selfie at the top of the world with my imagination

‘This painting is a selfie. I saw it in my dreams,’ says four-time Archibald finalist Emily Crockford, an artist at Studio A in Sydney.

‘I am on top of the world with blue sky behind me, with love hearts and flowers and a building in St Leonards where our studio is. There are the words “art” and “love” in the background and some of my artworks too. I am smiling in this painting, dreaming in the sky and singing in my mind. I am dreaming of my art and my patterns. This painting makes me feel happy and lovely. I am a professional artist, and I am proud, and I think my Dad would be proud of me.’

Crockford’s father featured in her 2020 Archibald self-portrait, which she painted to honour him after his death that year.
