Nell Smith

I take a painterly approach to printmaking, playfully and intuitively exploring process. My prints are built up in layers, combining screen and monoprint techniques. I develop contemporary, expressive compositions with an uplifting use of colour. My prints have a joyful and musical feel, lying somewhere between painting, collage and printmaking. With a background in textile design, I love unusual and interesting colour combinations. I make hundreds of collages to inform my printmaking, using them as meditative sketches. They are made up from scraps of paper, chopped up prints and ink drawings, ensuring my practice is a circular process.
