Cathy King Migration
Originally training as a Montessori Teacher, followed by a BA in Humanities with the Open University, Cathy has returned to her former interests in the practical arts.
Since joining the Double Elephant Print Workshop in Exeter in 2009 she has developed her printmaking practice and currently focusses on relief print. She predominately produces limited edition Linocut prints using both the reduction and multi-block technique.
The images in her linocuts employ the use of strong line and bold shapes to produce both semi abstract and figurative representations. She finds the process of printmaking engaging and dynamic; where a simple design can be cut into a relief plate and printed to produce a graphic style image that is quite distinct in its form.
She takes her inspiration from both the natural and urban landscape and greatly admires the work of artists such as Robert Tavener, Bawden, Peter Green and the Grosvenor School of Art.
