Holly Magdalene Scott is a Northumbrian artist based in Middleton in Teesdale, County Durham. A self-taught printmaker specialising in relief printmaking techniques, she is known for her well-observed, sensitive linocuts of birds. Borne from a strong connection to the land and inspired by memories of chance encounters with the wildlife within it, her hand-coloured prints seek to evoke the timelessness of avian lives. Holly’s prints are created without a press, printed by hand in small varied editions, imbuing each one with the unique character of it’s subject. Through careful observation and rendering of detail, Holly’s work seeks to elevate the overlooked and highlight beauty in the familiar.
