Angela Annesley

Printmaker and painter

My printmaking is both in woodcut and linocut using Japanese woodcarving chisels, capturing both the built and natural environment in Cornwall. I aim to show the wild and windy side of the Cornish landscape as well as an abstracted take on quirky local townscapes. I work in handprinted limited editions in both single colour and black, usually on Fabriano Rosaspina Ivoire paper, which takes the ink well and has a soft ivory colour and a matt finish. I also print on fabric. I see the world through a coloured lens and my paintings are warm and bright interpretations of what I see and feel, even in a cold winter landscape. They have a graphic, stained glass quality and strong lines that reflect my origins as a printmaker. I often paint en plain air and use oils and acrylics with an impasto medium to give a textured finish applied with a palette knife. I use cradled wooden panels rather than canvas, preferring their smooth, hard surface to create strong lines. I work from my studio on the cliffs in Sennen in West Cornwall, overlooking the stormy waters of the Celtic Sea. Commissions welcome.
