New connections with the landscape
Anne's printmaking is abstract, fluid and experimental, uniquely referencing forms, textures and colours taken from the points where we pause and connect with the landscape. Currently working predominantly with lino, screen, and monotype, she is increasingly starting to introduce 3D and digital elements to her pieces.
She also likes to challenge the pastoral, romantic expectations of rural art, particularly with reference to the Lake District, presenting a new and unexpected perspective.
Anne works with print because it is a triangulation of three things she enjoys: fine art, craft and design. The importance of print in the history of communication, democracy and protest is also a driving force. Print can change people's minds. By producing multiple copies, work becomes more accessible to a broader audience.
She has benefited from expertise at Linden Print Studio (Carlisle) and Northern Print (Newcastle), where she received a development bursary in 2021. She is a member of South West Scotland Printmakers.
