Helen Murgatroyd, Printmakers’ Printmaker
Based in Bude, North Cornwall, I make linocuts that document daily life. Food and the environments in which it is prepared and eaten are common themes running through my prints. My images aim to capture the humility in the rituals of our domestic lives. My printmaking practise is rooted in observational drawing; I am captivated by the challenge of translating spontaneous, hand-drawn marks into the graphic medium of linocut. I studied Graphic Design in Manchester before completing an MA in Printmaking at the Royal College of Art.
