2016 Printmaker Survey by Sophie Graine

 In Journal, Lino Printing, Printmaking

A few years ago Sophie Grain from Two Hoots Creative put out a call to lino printmakers around the world to complete a survey. And respond they did! In her own words …

In spring 2016, 50 linocut printmakers responded to a survey about their process. The purpose of the survey was to create a resource where printmakers can find information about which papers work with which inks, which printing processes are most popular, and what the artists they admire say and do.

It’s a great read full of interesting and very useful information. And the artist profiles of the all printmakers who contributed their thoughts, feedback and ideas, is a great resource in its own right.

Download the 2016 Printmaker Survey here. It is a 56 page pdf document. Don’t be scared by the number of pages. The document is well work the read!

In addition to a great resource that she created, she has created lovely prints and paintings that look to be influenced by the beautiful country she is surrounded by in Canada. Her printmaking work reminds me a lot of William Rice, one of my favourite lino and woodblock printmaking artists.

Viva la printmaking!
