Jackie Curtis

I am an artist printmaker working with relief techniques monoprints, collagraphs, linocuts and woodblocks. Inspired by the natural world. I can be found walking in the Somerset Levels observing birds, sketch book and camera in hand; looking for materials and ideas to use in my printmaking.

My monoprints are spontaneous, lively innovative prints often created as an immediate response to recent experiences. The collagraphs, produced from a collage of materials, are rich in texture and depth of tone. Linocuts are more intricate and stylised with strong elements of pattern, whilst the woodblocks are influenced by natural grain, shape and flaws in the wood.
