I feel for Angie Lewin’s work after discovering it yesterday within the pages of Garden Wisdom. With the weather being the way it is, makes me doubly enthusiastic to embrace botanical prints.
After working in London as an illustrator Angie studied horticulture and a move to Norfolk prompted a return to printmaking. Inspired by both the clifftops and saltmarshes of the North Norfolk coast and the Scottish Highlands, she depicts these contrasting environments and their native flora in wood engraving, linocut, silkscreen, lithograph and collage.
I love how each of her images look alive and bursting with movement.
