Printmaking Today

This is something new that has shown me just what you can do when you put your mind to it... I'm delighted to have an article published in the printmakers magazine 'Printmaking Today'

The article links into my research work and is all about Jason Hicklin; a fabulous landscape artist whose passion is for etching.

Jason Hicklin's etching studio
 I was able to visit Jason at his studio; it was a privilege to be able to discuss his working methods with him and to gain something of an insight into his practice.

Jason Hicklin - Castle Skerry from Burwick
Jason works entirely from sketches made on his walking trips to remote corners and outposts of the British Isles. These drawings ensure that his etchings have an immediacy which captures the atmosphere of each place he visits.

I am very grateful to both Jason Hicklin and to Printmaking Today for this fascinating and rewarding opportunity.
