Overview

The lines of an etching signify something meditative in the landscape. A methodical process of observing, drawing and making, reflecting the balance that being beside the water brings.

 

Each print begins with a sketchbook drawing that is slowly worked into an etching and printed to a limited edition in the studio. When working with a plate my practice of printmaking focuses on the movement of ink and the direction of hand-drawn lines, becoming familiar with the marks unique to each piece.

 

Paintings also focus on the notion of repeating a single mark, with hand-sewn canvas and areas of tone representing balanced and minimal observations. This process echoes the structure of printmaking.

Sarah continues to document her landscape through print and painting from her studio in Newlyn, Cornwall. Her precise and well considered line drawings are developed into etchings  while also choosing a minimal colour palette for when she paints. Sarah graduated from Falmouth University where she studied a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. 

 

Additional information: Each etching print is printed on Somerset Satin paper made from 100% cotton which has a gently textured surface. We offer framing and recommend a simple float mounted style with a slim wooden frame which is either left natural wood or painted black, white or a colour of your choice.
