Julie Orpen - Suffolk, UK
Julie Orpen’s lino prints and engravings are often inspired by the natural landscape, and she tries to convey movement and a sense of depth in her work.
Julie’s studies in Graphic Design (Norwich School of Art 1983 -86) have influenced the way she has developed as a printmaker over the past few years. The flat colour produced when printing with a piece of Lino or an Engraving block can achieve either a simple ‘graphic’ image or a more complex, subtly coloured, multi layered print. She uses both these techniques, and sometimes incorporates the use of letterpress type.
Julie is very inspired by the early pioneers of lino printing, such as the Grosvenor school of artists, including Cyril Power, and Sybil Andrews, as well as Eric Ravilious and Edward Bawden.
