Painting and printmaking are my preferred media and I use both to create layers and depth in my work. The subject matter is my response to the environment, more abstract than representational and can be landscape, building, floral or abstract. Colour and design are strong elements in the work.
Since graduating in Fine Art, Jessica has always been inspired by nature and her surroundings. She is most recently exploring Printmaking as her chosen medium, but previously her work was primarily ink drawings. Limited Edition prints are available to buy, Jessica also accepts commissions.
The style of my work reflects various artistic influences, both painterly and graphic.Inks are what I typically paint with. They allow me to move fluidly between painting and drawing.
Printmaking is also becoming part of my creative arsenal. In particular, linocuts and drypoint etching. Subjects which manifest in my work the most include organic forms, the natural world, paraphernalia from by-gone eras and most notably, peacocks.
Bridgnorth based printmaker, Julia Timmins, creates highly detailed and intricate prints. Specialising in wood engraving, a fine form of relief printmaking, Julia also enjoys making linocuts and drypoint prints. “I love to work from natural forms, plants and flowers, birds, fish and fossils. I am continually inspired by my garden and the beautiful Shropshire countryside that surrounds my studio. I respond to the rich patterns and design in nature to produce my prints.” Julia is an elected member of the Society of Wood Engravers and exhibits her prints throughout the UK.
I am a printmaker and professional illustrator based in the Ironbridge Gorge, Shropshire. I create artworks in lino print and mixed media as a series of art cards, limited edition prints and as surface pattern on a range of handmade paper lanterns. My art is inspired by wildlife and landscape heritage – I enjoy creating work that connects people with nature, wildlife and a sense of place.
Mixed media works including print, drawing and painting investigating the dynamics of power, climate and diversity through votive imagery.
