Prints@Dovecot

Anne Russell

Anne Russell, originally from Orkney,now lives and works in Perthshire on the banks of the River Tay. Her influences and inspiration derive from growing up in Orkney, walking the shores and cliffs. Her prints are not always representational, instead suggesting a time of day or a memory, capturing the sense of a place. Latterly she has been concentrating on monoprinting either on it's own, as a one off unique piece of artwork or combining monoprinting with wood cut and etching. Anne graduated from Grays and Glasgow School of Art and exhibits throughout the UK.
