Carry Akroyd. Landscape Illustrator, Printmaker and more.

February 26, 2011

A painter and printmaker, Carry Akroyd has lived most of her life in rural East Northamptonshire.

Her interest in the landscape draws on many levels of fascination: history mainly, also geology,

botany and wildlife.

She is drawn to the nature of the unlabelled countryside trying to survive alongside agribusiness.

Carry walks around whichever area is of current interest to her, accumulating sketches and visual notes,

trying to take in all sorts of information which, later in the studio, are distilled into the final image.

I think Carry  is one of the most diverse artists I’ve seen recently, she is a master of areas such as

screenprints, monoprints, etchings, linocuts, watercolours, oils, drawings and lithographs !

She is also a huge fan of the Northamptonshire poet John Clare born in 1973.

You can discover more about her and see more of Carrys’ work on her blogsite here.
