Catherine Sutcliffe-Fuller


Born in 1970, I live and work as an artist in York. I studied at York College of Art and Design, followed by the University of Brighton where I specialised in Fine Art Printmaking. Graduating in 1994 I set up my own print studio to work full-time as a professional printmaker, specialising in etching and relief printing. I have completed commissions for Portakabin Plc, been artist in residence at St. Peters School, York and have had my work represented by the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art who have sold my prints to the banking sectors in London. Having grown up on a smallholding in a small village on the outskirts of York, surrounded by woodland, home grown vegetables and farm stock, I am very much involved with nature and nurture. My work depicts how nature 'tolerates' the activities of stewardship and about people who have contact with nature. I start with a spontaneous drawing, developing it into a considered design and then use my experience as a printmaker to turn it into a work of art. By using a combination of both lino and etching I am able to build layers of contrast between man and nature. I hope to capture an outlook and mood in my work that shows the working landscape devoted to management and maintenance. For this I have been awarded by DEFRA a prize for 'best picture' depicting Sustainability, Selectors Prize for 'best in show' in the North Lincolnshire National Print Open Exhibition 2010 and exhibited at The Royal Academy Summer Show 2010. read full statement
