Suzi Thompson

I am a fine art printmaker based in South Yorkshire working with collagraph, drypoint & relief printing processes to create limited edition prints, artists’ books and a range of hand printed, bound and stitched notebooks; inspired by the accessible open countryside of my local surroundings, British wildlife and flora.

My printmaking reflects my impressions of the natural landscapes surrounding my home and studio. Using intricate cutting and applied textures to my collagraph plates allows me to explore the structures and forms of native wildflowers and wildlife; isolating key elements and sections of the cycle of the seasons or the character of a familiar animal or bird. The addition of drypoint further enhances my studies of these forms using the drawn line directly on to the printing plate.
