Alice Fox

category: Paper   Printmaking   

region: Yorkshire   

My work combines techniques from textiles and printmaking traditions, the two often combining to make abstract contemplative pieces that celebrate and carry an essence of what I experience in the natural world. I aim to draw the viewer in, invite them to look closer and perhaps notice things they might otherwise have over-looked. I work with paper and cloth as well as making use of materials gathered from the places I walk.

My work ranges from large-scale installations for specific spaces to intimate framed artworks and artists’ books. Each piece develops by layering up marks and textures, building up subtle surfaces and exploring materials through the making process. I use found metal objects with tea to make marks on paper, silk and linen, making use of natural dye techniques. I set things up and watch them develop, responding to the marks that appear with further layers of print and the contoured lines of hand stitch.

The flora and fauna of the English countryside is a reoccurring theme and I like to draw creatures well known in the landscape and part of English folklore. I’m also slightly obsessed with pattern and decoration! […]

Clare Caulfield

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   Paper   Printmaking   

region: Yorkshire   

I am a Saltaire based artist and printmaker.  My work is inspired by my travels to some of the world’s most beautiful cities including Paris, Venice and New York.  Working in a lively drawing style I aim to capture the excitement, life and vibrancy of each location I visit, documenting my travels through the use of sketchbooks and photographs.  On returning to my studio I then produce mixed-media paintings, original screenprints & drypoints, limited edition prints and handmade cards.  These are exhibited throughout the U.K. in regular solo and group shows.

Closer to home I have also produced a series of work capturing the rugged beauty and charm of Yorkshire’s much loved coastal towns: Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and Staithes.

My background is fine art, I then spent 15 years as a community artist facilitating creativity in others, a few years ago I found screenprinting to be the best way of reproducing my ideas, I like to use collaged vintage paper under prints and use fabrics to make useful and beautiful items. My themes seem to always be about nature but whatever the subject I love to celebrate the scratchy hand drawn line.

region: Midlands   

I am self taught and create multiple plate Linocuts using a traditional letterpress at the Gloucestershire Printmaking Co-operative where I am a member.

I draw my inspiration for my work mainly from British flora and fauna. The style of work is strong and graphic and often references the Arts and Crafts movement which has rubbed off on me after living in the Cotswolds for a decade where the movement is in evidence all around.

category: Printmaking   

region: East Midlands   

I have always loved to draw. But a lightbulb moment happened when driving along my local high street, observing the vibrancy and activity of a community – shoppers and parents getting from one point to another; pathways crossing and intersecting, given context when placed against recognisable shops and schools. I realised that this passing of […]

Hedge and Hog: Designs and Prints

category: Printmaking   

region: North West   

I am a printmaker, working primarily with linocuts and collagraph techniques. I am a trained Architect and completed my PhD in 2004. My handmade, limited edition prints are all made from my original sketches that are inspired by my life around me, and by seeing the beauty in the mundane. You will also see a layered colour palette, often bright but muted, and subtle. I aim to create prints that can inspire a smile, a memory, and a piece of art that you can form your own personal associations with.
Having studied Architectural Conservation, mark-making is of specific interest and how different surfaces and cutting methods can give individuality to a piece. With price range mostly between £15-£65, they are an affordable means to collect original, handmade and unique art.

I’m a printmaker influenced by ceramics, pattern and seasonal botanicals, finding inspiration in the everyday fallen treasures. I incorporate many hand printing techniques, building up printed layers slowly with as much love for the process as for the plants that inspire, creating one of a kind prints and small original editions. I mix hand drawn […]

Little Ram Studio

category: Printmaking   

region: Yorkshire   

Little Ram Studio is Gary and Heather Ramskill – both artists & printmakers, we produce original prints from our home studio in a quiet North Yorkshire village. Specialising in linocut printing, we use the surrounding countryside and the many wildlife visitors to our garden as inspiration for our art. Each one lovingly made by hand, from the hand cutting of the lino plate to the mixing of the inks and the pressing of the paper on a hand press.

Gary’s style and technique, whether using a single or multiple colour plates, is to capture the finest detail, not in the photographic sense but one step removed from the identical representation, as if through a muted lens.

Heather’s print style takes inspiration from all things natural, especially favourite landscapes and the soft shapes of flowers. She tries to capture the strokes of the water colourist in her printmaking.

Louise McLaren

category: Paper   Printmaking   

region: Scotland   

I create delicate, intricately patterned images filled with romantic, uplifting and inspiring sentiments and use these to make extra special, handcrafted gifts to give to your nearest and dearest! Each design begins life as a pencil drawing which I cut by hand, with a scalpel. This process fills each image with character and idiosyncrasies that cannot be digitally replicated. I also produce screen prints in limited edition runs.
