Katie Clemson

I heard about this artist when there was an obituary for her in the Guardian, and looked her up.  I have just revisited her website for this research and it is just sitting there, still in limbo. 

Most of her work is linocuts and mainly inspired by the sea and water.. I think many of her images are beautiful:

This first one is called the Thames at 10pm, Bankside


The one below was inspired by a series of journeys she did across the Australian desert interior, and the ghosts of seas that never were..  It is very large for a lino cut at 1.2m x 2m and is titled All at Sea.

all at sea

Katie Clemson co wrote a book with Rosemary Sissons called the Complete Manual of Relief Printmaking.
