Printmaking

Carol Parker

I am an experienced Art Teacher and an enthusiastic Prtintmaker. My quirky Linocuts illustrate well-loved nursery rhymes and sayings or are inspired by local places. I have recently added driftwood assemblages and collages to my repertoire, giving me an excuse to spend hours on the beach! I exhibit regularly in an Open House at Brighton Festival, in Steyning and here in Shoreham.

Melissa Birch

I first discovered printmaking during my degree at the Ruskin School of Fine Art in Oxford.  It was a thrill to use the etching presses and see the artworks magically revealed as they peeled away from the plate.  When I later learnt a technique for producing lino prints in my own studio I became hooked for good. Living in the South Downs fuels my obsession with nature, and particularly floral structures.  The morning sun falling on a roadside thistle can literally stop me in…

Walk with the Dawn- Collagraph

She is fascinated by marks that are made from real objects, especially nature and plants. Peon uses Collagraph to depict her botanical prints and landscape, where she escapes from her day to day roles. Her early walks in the South Downs inspire her work. The changing colours of the sky entice her, she finds herself and her sanity. The dynamic yet soothing colour allude to the organic materials depicted in her prints, and they have an intricate, elegance and somehow minimalist…

Steve Carroll

Steve is better known for his digital prints of Sussex – also shown here – which are a combination of hand drawing and Photoshop, but he wanted to create something more serious. He turned back recently to oil painting and bought an etching press. Printmaking has been his latest passion – always led by drawing from observation. He is rarely without his sketchbook.
