Sarah Ross-Thompson is a Fine Art Printmaker specialising in hand-inked, collagraph prints, originally inspired by the Dorset landscape. Having recently relocated to the beautiful West Coast of Scotland her new work may have a slightly more rugged feel, although the Dorset themes will continue.
Using carefully built collage blocks, her work combines the vibrant colours of oil-based printing inks with the textural qualities of the materials she uses. This combination produces a distinctive look that makes her work instantly recognisable.
Having experimented with a number of printmaking techniques Sarah now works almost exclusively through collagraphy. Experimentation with new materials such as chopped chives and oatmeal in conjunction with the more conventional string, kitchen salt and corrugated card, ensures that her work is constantly evolving
Sarah’s ‘Textural Landscape’ series, explores the geographical variety of the British countryside. From hidden coves and rocky coastal paths to dense woodland and vast vistas overhung by massive skies, she finds it a never ending wealth of inspiration. Following her recent move from Wimborne, Dorset to Lochgoilhead, Argyll she is looking forward to exploring more dramatic scenery and comparing the two.
