Introducing print-maker Angie Lewin...
Plus new work from Susie Perring
Silkscreen print on paper
Throughout July, we're delighted to be showing a gorgeous selection of prints by the acclaimed artist, designer and print-maker Angie Lewin. Many of you will recognise her stunning work made in not only silkscreen, but also lino-cut and wood engraving. Her work has been exhibited all around the U.K; her design and illustration work has appeared as part of numerous publications for Penguin, Faber and Picador among others, and her fabric and stationery designs for Liberty London and St Jude's Fabrics which Angie runs with her husband Simon.
Much of Angie's work is inspired by the landscapes in which she lives - in both Norfolk and Scotland. Seed heads, plant forms and patterns all inform her distinct style.
'I'm attracted to the relationships between plant communities on an intimate level, even the fine lines of insect eggs on a flower bud are observed in my work', she says. 'Still lives often incorporate seedpods, grasses, flints and dried seaweed collected on walking and sketching trips.'
In 2006 Angie was elected to be a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, and in 2008 The Royal Society of Wood Engravers. In 2010 she was elected to be a member of The Art Workers Guild.

'Into the Sun
Etching and aquatint
Also in-keeping with the print-making theme is a fresh new delivery of work by Susie Perring. Susie is best known for her use of light in her aquatint etchings; each one seems to glow from dazzling sunlight or cool reflected light from a pond.
Susie spent many years as a graphic designer in London, before becoming an artist full time. She has taught at the London College of Printing, and for the outreach programme at Dulwich Picture gallery. Her work has recently been selected for the Royal Academy Summer exhibition.
