Kathleen Lindsley

Born in Gibraltar in 1951, studied fine art at Newcastle Upon Tyne. Introduced to wood engraving by Leo Wyatt in 1974. Resident in Scotland since 1976 and full time in Skye since 1987.

I employ the medium of wood engraving, a relief printing process, to interpret and record the area in which I live. The blocks are usually end-grain boxwood, sometimes lemonwood. I edition my prints on fine papers using an Albion hand press. Sometimes I work to commission in illustration and design. Presses I have worked with include The Fleece, Wild Hawthorn, Whittington, Black Pennel, Partick, Perpetua and Folio Society.
