Linocut prints of British landscapes and wildlife. Michelle is inspired by the Yorkshire Dales, Yorkshire Coast, North York Moors and Lake District, as well as the wildlife that inhabits them.
Exhibiting in 2023
Michelle enjoys walking and cycling and uses photography to provide references back in her studio. She captures the spirit of a landscape by distilling the views into simpler graphic shapes and a limited colour palette. Each design is created using the multi-block linocut method. The designs are hand-carved into lino blocks, one for each colour to be printed and hand-printed using oil-based inks.
Michelle teaches online courses and linocut workshops in her York studio.michellehughes.co.uk
