Suzi Thompson

Printmaker working with collagraph, drypoint & relief printing to create limited edition prints, artists’ books and a range of hand printed, bound and stitched notebooks.

Inspired by the accessible open countryside of my local surroundings, British wildlife and flora, my printmaking reflects my impressions of the natural landscapes surrounding my home and studio. Using intricate cutting and applied textures to my collagraph plates allows me to explore the structures and forms of native wildflowers and wildlife; isolating key elements and sections of the cycle of the seasons or the character of a familiar animal or bird.

The addition of drypoint further enhances my studies of these forms using the drawn line directly on the printing plate. I also enjoy the tactile process of book making and combine hand printed paper and card covers with traditional case binding, coptic and pamphlet stitch to create a range of individual notebooks and sketchbooks alongside hand printed and constructed artists books.
