I don't have one of these Emma, but did have an older Epson Stylus colour printer and decided not to renew with an Epson next time because of the way the colour printed on the page, leaving distinct bands - meaning it wasn't really good for photo printing.
I found a review that is fairly readable here
. According to this review, it is a good machine but is let down by slow printing time for photos, paper curl when printing photos and some banding (the problem I had with mine). Knowing that you're an artist and good quality printing is likely to be important if you're using it to help you with your work, you might like to see if you could do some test prints before you decide to purchase one.
This one is also quite old (in computer terms) being over a year old and there may be newer models that would do what you wanted.
With any one that you purchase it would be good if you could take an image in with you and ask if they would print one for you. If you had the same image from each machine that you were considering you would have a good comparison as to print quality and speed.
We went for an HP Deskjet next time which is excellent. For my next one, I've found that the newer HP printers seem a bit ink hungry and am considering a Canon which gets good reviews on that score.
