Sue Brown

trowbridge artist - Sue Brown Sue Brown completed her degree in Fine Art in the late 1970's in Bristol, England, where she specialised in etching and printmaking. In 1996 she added collagraphs to her portfolio of work after discovering this printmaking technique. This process involves making a collage, sealing the surface with varnish, then inking and printing the plate with an etching press. The technique provides intaglio prints with deeply textural surfaces. She is passionate about promoting the understanding of original printmaking as an art form and is involved in conducting workshops and demonstrations with these skills. The images Sue uses are a vehicle for her to use the qualities of these two printmaking techniques. By developing layers of mono print over collagraph work, then, reprinting with further plates, rich layers of ink are built up. This results in a very limited edition of between 10-30 pieces, each print has unique qualities. Sue's attitude to her work is summed up by the quote by Miro, 'For me, printmaking is a major means of expression. It has been a means of liberation, expansion and discovery.'
