post-image

Emily Crockford was born in Sydney in 1986. She has been awarded a number of major public art commissions and exhibited in various group exhibitions. This is her first time as an Archibald Prize finalist.

Emily Crockford’s portrait is painted in honour of her late father, John Crockford, who died in January 2020. She says: ‘This painting is my dream come true. It’s my dream of my daddy. I watched him flying his beautiful planes in the fields. He made amazing models. This painting is very special to me. Emily is a member of the Studio A, Artists Studio.
