Welcome!

I am a UK based artist working mainly with printmaking techniques. I have a fascination for the living world...

Here's a little about me... 

My name is Jane Spink.  I'm an artist who enjoys nothing more than working in my studio, which is always flooded with natural light...

After obtaining a degree in Textile Design at Central Saint Martin's School of Art in London back in the early 80s, I worked freelance in both textile and graphic design.  Subsequently, I did a 16 year long stint as an Art Teacher in UK secondary schools before "retiring" in 2018 to set up my studio and become a full-time artist.
 
My inspiration and ideas tend to come mainly from nature and the living world, and I also have a love of 20th Century Art and Design (in particular, the Arts & Crafts Movement, Art Deco and the work of artists from the first half of the 20th Century, such as Henry Moore).
 
I would describe myself as an artist who likes to explore ideas using printmaking and mixed media techniques.  I enjoy harnessing processes which can lead to exciting and sometimes unpredictable outcomes and am always open to "happy accidents" ! I love the strong, bold marks that can be made with relief printing processes and equally the more subtle ranges achievable with other techniques such as cyanotype.  My practice is constantly evolving - with so much left to explore, in terms of both process and subject matter...
