Angie Lewin

I have always really liked the prints of Angie Lewin, but it is only reccently I managed to read a book about her work and saw some of her sketchbook pages too. Whilst her final pieces are usually lino prints, I discovered that her early designs are often pencil and watercolour, a combination that is my favourite to work with. It was really inspiring to see how she takes seed head and flower shapes and turns them into something more graphic and stylised. What I really like about her work, other than her impeccable use of colour, is how she combines drawing some elements true to life, and others in a stylised imaginative way.
