Having studied BA Fashion and Textile Design at Nottingham Trent, majoring in print, Tania has recently returned to this discipline in the much more relaxed and expressive area of fine art printmaking.
Tania’s prints are inspired by walking and sketching in the beautiful, rolling Hertfordshire countryside and the dramatic landscape of the west coast of Scotland. She is often to be found getting up at 5.30 in the morning so as not to miss what promises to be a beautiful sunrise over the rolling English countryside.
Tania is inspired by landscape artists such as Kurt Jackson, Barbara Rae and Norman Ackroyd to produce fine art prints, which quite often incorporate a variety of print disciplines in an attempt to capture the fragile atmosphere of the ever-changing English landscape.
She loves the richness and depth of multimedia prints and has been known to remove what she thought was a finished print from its frame to re-print, paint or collage another layer on top! At the moment, Tania is experimenting with combining the subtle atmospheric etching marks created by spit bite etching, inspired by Norman Ackroyd, with the flat block shapes created using a lino plate.
She combines her love of fine art printmaking with her other great passion which is teaching. She teaches art workshops throughout the South East, where she thoroughly enjoys passing on her enthusiasm for learning new art techniques and disciplines to her students.
