Statement

Specialising in intaglio and relief printmaking Anna’s current work derives from her response to motifs discovered in the architectural detail of North Yorkshire’s heritage buildings. Wanting to celebrate that which could easily be overlooked and which is often faded and worn away she uses a rich and colourful palette to begin the restorative process, aiming to create an overall abstract design that allows the viewer to connect with both the history and beauty of her chosen elements of inspiration.

Studio experience

My studio is well equipped with a wide range of printing equipment and materials, including my print press. Visitors will see sketchbooks, work in progress and have the opportunity to experience and participate in demonstrations.

There is a gallery space with framed prints, mounted pieces in browsers and cards for sale. I look forward to the opportunity to talk through my inspiration, ideas and the techniques I use within my work with any visitors.
