I’m Shaun a self-taught printmaker from York living in the Fulford area. My journey into printmaking took off from my time at Derby University in my 3rd year through a friend studying illustration, who persuaded me to get back into printing and change my perception of it. Linocut is my main medium giving me a new alternative way of making my Artwork and since then printmaking has grown to me.
I take Inspiration for my prints usually from everyday surroundings and objects what Interests me. Most of the time my subject matter focuses on Animals of late and people depending on my surroundings. such as pets and other wildlife from watching wildlife documentaries looking through David Attenborough books and other linocut artists. Gathering inspiration and ideas in creating my linocuts. I capture the emotions, mood and personality within these.
