Suzi is a printmaker based in South Yorkshire working with collagraph, drypoint & relief printing processes to create limited edition prints, artists’ books and a range of hand printed, bound and stitched notebooks.
Her printmaking reflects her impressions of the natural landscapes surrounding her home and studio; inspired by the accessible open countryside of her local surroundings, British wildlife and flora.
Using intricate cutting and applied textures to her collagraph plates allows her to explore the structures and forms of native wildflowers and wildlife; isolating key elements and sections of the cycle of the seasons or the character of a familiar animal or bird. The addition of drypoint further enhances her studies of these forms using the drawn line directly on the printing plate.
All Suzi’s collagraph prints are hand pulled limited editions, usually a maximum of twenty prints in each edition. Due to the proceeses she uses of hand inking, wiping and burnishing the collagraph plates, each print will be slightly different from the last making each one uniqiue. She prints onto Fabriano Rosapina 285gsm acid free paper using oil based printing inks and the numbered, signed and dated prints are then either mounted using acid free card mounts ready for framing or professionally framed into hand stained and waxed ash frames. She have chosen ash as her preferred wood for framing as the nature of the wood grain means that each frame has a unique grain direction, again adding to the individuality of the work.
