HOLLY MAGDALENE SCOTT

“I am a printmaker based in Middleton in Teesdale.  I create intricate, sensitive linocuts inspired by the natural world.

My process is long and complex and is very much shaped by my daily life and inner world.

I like to be fully immersed in the dramatic landscapes of Teesdale, and often feel inspired at dusk – a time which I have always associated with tranquillity and healing. In the ‘gloaming’ all creatures seem to reveal themselves in their natural environment.

I spend much time outdoors; wandering, experiencing, documenting. These experiences inform my writing, ink drawings and linocuts.

Borne from a strong connection to the land, and inspired by memories and chance encounters with wildlife, my hand-coloured prints seek to evoke the folkloric timelessness of animal lives, which   often run unseen, tangential to our own human existence.”
