Meet the Maker: Anne Desmet RA

Thursday, May 09, 2019

I was born in 1964 and brought up in Liverpool. I have BFA and MA degrees in Fine Art from Oxford University, a Postgraduate Diploma in Printmaking from Central School of Art, London, and in 2018 was elected an Honorary Fellow of Worcester College, Oxford University, for ‘distinction in the world of art’. I exhibit my wood engravings, linocuts and printed collages widely, have won 40 national and international awards (including a Rome Scholarship in Printmaking; a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award, USA; and an Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Award, Montreal, Canada) and have works in public and private collections worldwide. The Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, and the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester, have each purchased significant holdings of my works. Over 30 solo shows include two major museum retrospectives at the Ashmolean (1998) and the Whitworth (2008) respectively: each toured UK museums for two years. I had an earlier retrospective at Moscow’s Ex Libris Museum, Russia (1995); and solo exhibitions at the Holburne Museum, Bath (2017) and Gainsborough’s House Museum, Suffolk (2018). I am author of four printmaking and drawing books and was editor of Printmaking Today magazine from 1998-2013. I am only the third wood engraver ever elected to membership of the Royal Academy of Arts (RA) in its 250-year history. I live and work in London.  Read more

Meet the Maker: Kat Flint

Thursday, April 11, 2019

I’m Kat, and I’m a designer/printmaker from Aberdeen, now living and working in South East London. I make quirky, story-filled linocut prints… I came to printmaking late, and almost by accident, following the birth of my daughter in 2015. I was keen to make my living as a creative working on my own terms in order to find some kind of genuine work/life balance, but I had originally envisaged starting a business designing ceramic homewares. That fell by the wayside when I realised how much I loved linocut, and how much easier it is to accommodate a press at home than a kiln.

Meet the Maker: Wayne Longhurst

Thursday, March 14, 2019

I am a Worthing based linocut printmaker. Born in Brighton, moving to Worthing in 2012, I've always been surrounded by the Downs and the sea, for which I am very lucky, if a little complacent of at times! Read more

Meet the Maker: James Green

Thursday, February 28, 2019

My name is James Green and I'm an artist and printmaker based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. I specialise in linocut and screen-print and have been working in these mediums for around sixteen years. Nine years ago I decided to give up my 'proper' job to concentrate on doing this full-time. My subjects range from landscapes to UK wildlife to surreal donkey compositions and larger abstract works. Read more

Meet the Maker: Gemma Dunn

Thursday, February 14, 2019

I am a painter and printmaker from Salisbury, Wiltshire. I have a background in product design but my love of materials and traditional craftsmanship led me to pursue a career in fine art. I am happiest outdoors and when I’m not occupied with my two young children I can usually be found working on something in my studio or tending to our allotment. Read more
