Diana Croft Painter / Printmaker / Stained Glass Artist

 

Diana Croft

 

is a painter and printmaker who specialises in linocuts and collographs inspired by nature and the landscape. The prints are often stylised representations of landscapes particularly the South Downs and have a strong sense of pattern and design. She often uses chine colle techniques (applying layers of handmade tissue to the print) to add an extra dimesion of colour and texture. Because of this technique the prints vary one from another and each one is a unique piece. Recent work has been using three plate collagraphs to produce semi-abstract prints inspired by plants and seedheads.
