Kathryn Bell

PRINTMAKER PROFILE

ARTIST STATEMENT

Kathryn Bell is an artist and print technician working in the North East of England, where she graduated with a first-class honours degree in Fine Art. As an experienced print technician, she demonstrates print techniques to degree students at the Northern School of Art.

Inspiration comes from natural form which is translated into a combination of print processes including relief, screen print and cyanotype. The ‘Etched’ series is a body of work that has a depth created by painting caustic soda onto lino, then carving further into the work with Pfeil lino tools. Hand drawn stencils were screen printed onto the paper before printing the lino. Kathryn is a member of People of Print; a community of printmakers, illustrators and graphic designers. She regularly exhibits and sells her work around the UK and permanently has work for sale in an independent shop in Durham.
