About Clare Sherwen

 
 
  • Biography

    I am a printmaker/painter and specialise in producing small editions of collagraph prints which create with a textural and tonal quality and a sense of depth, shadow and atmosphere. 

    At the moment I mainly work with collagraphs as it is a safe form of printmaking which means I can print from my dining room table!

    Collagraph Print - Print created from a card plate made by adding paint, glue, enamel and other textures. This holds the ink in varying degrees and is printed through the intaglio process. The more texture on the printing plate the more ink it will hold and the darker the image will print. The smoother the surface it will hold less ink and print lighter.

    I have also recently been doing a lot of work around animals and find my new cat a great inspiration in my artwork!
