Jackie Curtis is a prolific artist printmaker working with refief techniques monoprints, collagraphs, linocuts and woodblocks. Inspired by the natural world, Jackie can be found walking in the Somerset Levels observing birds, sketch book and camera in hand; looking for materials and ideas to use in her printmaking.
Her monoprints are spontaneous, lively innovative prints often created as an immediate response to recent experiences. The collagraphs, produced from a collage of materials, are rich in texture and depth of tone. Linocuts are more intricate and stylised with strong elements of pattern, whilst her woodblocks are influenced by natural grain, shape and flaws in the wood.
Jackie works from her Somerset studio, visitors are welcome by appointment please email [email protected] She runs workshops from her studio for monoprinting and collagraphs more information can be found at www.jcurtisart.com. Her work can also be viewed at Ginger Fig in Taunton and Clavelshay Barn at North Petherton. She is a member of The Chandos Society and participates annually in Somerset Art Weeks.
