Nancy Power

I am a self-taught printmaker living in the East Midlands. After over 25 years of working in the clothing industry and trying to fit in time for printing, a timely redundancy gave me the impetus to pursue printmaking full time. I have never looked back!

The main focus of my practice is creating reduction linocut prints. I’m excited by the ‘absolute’ decision-making that this process requires. Many of my images are printed from dark to light, as I am intrigued as to how the colours perform quite differently and give some unexpected and surprising results. My work features the countryside and coastal scenes, plants, animals and still life. I love nature and the contrasts of light throughout the seasons, which I try to portray in my work.
