Shirley Stevenson

I am now working as a full-time artist following a long career in art education, teaching printmaking across different disciplines.

My drawings and prints have emerged from things observed and selected, the Seakale at Dungeness and pools of filtered light. The focus is on shape, space, colour and surface, investigating different ways of responding intuitively to observed information. I have played with the mark, the edge and pattern-like qualities which I have then interpreted through print processes. Other aspects of life and place have flowed in and out of the work, as it begins to unfold.
Working concurrently on drawings and prints helps me to work more fluidly, reflecting, selecting and changing elements through the development of the piece, each process informing the other.
