The Artist: Bruce Emmett
Bruce Emmett and his covers have always left me feeling happy, as they are so very pretty.
Emmett is a Canadian-born artist. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 1973 from Syracuse University.
Emmett began as a traditional oil and acrylic painter, in both fine and commercial art. He has produced work for theater and movie posters, book covers, magazines, and advertisements.
Bruce Emmett has created about 650 Elvis paintings for collectible plates produced by the Bradford Exchange.
He also produces digital art, creating startlingly lifelike images with a retro feel.
Emmett’s romance cover art is marked by naturalism. Many of his covers portrayed outdoor scenes of couples lying in fields of lush grasses or flowers.
For the week of Monday, May 30, 2022, to Sunday, June 4, 2022, we’re displaying some stunning Bruce Emmett covers for you to marvel at.
