This is a repeat of Discovering Tracey Emin – GI 21 076. Please note that the repeat course time will be 2pm – 4.30pm.

Tracey Emin CBE RA was born in London in 1963. Through media such as needlework, sculpture, photography, drawing, painting, video and installation, she has created an intimate and emotionally honest body of work that reflects a life that has been, at times, difficult and challenging. She first came to prominence as a ‘member’ of the Young British Artists (YBAs) and has been inspired by Edvard Munch and Egon Schiele. Emin was also Eranda Professor of Drawing at the Royal Academy Schools from 2011–13.

Please note: Due to the easing of social distancing measures, this face to face course has a capacity of 21 attendees. This is set at 75% of full capacity to ensure safety for our students and tutors. We will endeavour to increase this number to full capacity in due course.

About the Speaker

Tammy Ellis

Tammy was born in London and raised for some years in the North of England. She returned to her roots in 1982 to attend the University of London to read a degree in French and German and, more importantly, this is where she met her husband.

Whilst languages remain an important part of her life, and she still teaches both French and German up to A level, her main passion is Art History. Tammy has been a lecturer in Art History at The Guildford Institute since graduating from the University of Surrey in 2007. Her main interests lie in 19th, 20th and 21st Century art and her aim has always been to make art accessible and ‘food for the soul’.

Over the past four years Tammy has also been involved in art tours to France, Ireland and Liverpool and has given guided visits of Tate Britain. She thoroughly enjoy the level of interaction that these trips bring. Tammy also lectures privately to groups and gives ‘one-off’ talks on art.

Tammy has three wonderful children, two dogs and a horse and they all keep her very busy! When she does have a moment’s peace, she loves to bake and read books for her book club.


V Café at The Guildford Institute provides a friendly catering service using high quality, fresh, vegetarian and vegan ingredients.
