Emma Kate Herbert ~ Making the Most of Every Day.
Bath, a fabulous location to find creative inspiration.

Welcome, and thank you for stopping by!

My name is Emma, and I’m an author and artist with a desire to share my love of travel, art, and culture. 

The original concept of this website was to share my adventures. When I wrote my first book, it was driven by a desire to highlight the importance of family time. I still hold that core belief and through actions I take on a daily basis, I am slowly achieving the life I desire.

But eleven years on from my charity road trip around France I’m expanding my creative exploits! 2024 is going to be an exciting year for us, so I’d love to tell you more about it. 

In a natural progression, recently I’ve been working on a new website which brings together my passions for art, travel, and words. I will be taking my creative musings a step further by adding art and photography as an extension of my writing. 

If you’d like to explore more with me, or are interested ways to paint nature and our wonderful landscapes, please join me at Painterly Ponders. 

My aim remains the same; to share our journey with you, and to inspire others to follow their internal compass. 

Of course, you may be here just for books, so if you’d like to become part of my reader group, you can do so here

My desire to write is still strong, so I will keep the blog here up to date. You’ll still find insights into the mind of a creative wanderer, but my paintings, articles about art, and most of my photography will live on Painterly Ponders.

I’m not a huge fan of social media, but I do keep my Pinterest profile up to date with articles from both websites. You’ll also find plenty of travel and nature photography there!

Best wishes,


Please Share to Help Us Grow!
