Clare Curtis. Relief Printmaker traveling back to her roots.

July 3, 2012

Clare Curtis grew up in Felixstowe, Suffolk and traveled to Dundee to study Illustration and Printmaking at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art back in 1991.

She moved to London, establishing herself as a freelance Illustrator whist teaching at an evening class. She says that looking back to that time, London life wasn’t that creative as the main focus seemed to be on personal survival.

In 1997 she decided to return to Suffolk and start the process of printmaking again. Gradually acquiring equipment and knowledge as time went on.

Today she lives in her grandfather’s old house and with relief printmaking as her main focus, Clare not only has returned to her roots, but has found her style and medium to work in. What beautiful images she creates. I love her book covers and breakfast cereal boxes below.

There’s a great article written about her on the Suffolk Craft Society site here.
