Birmingham Print Studio Members

We are a thriving print making studio in the heart of Birmingham. We offer our membership to experienced printmakers who are looking to develop their practice and do so on a limited basis. We select our members based on their experience and ask all potential new members to supply recent (with the last 12 months) examples of their work. All our members are selected on this basis, as we encourage membership from artists who have worked in a shared printmaking facility. Our members are all aware of studio health and safety and the responsibilities of maintaining shared equipment so that others may also enjoy a clean and safe working environment. 

As well our 60 artist members, we also have a printmaking technician at the studio available to help with any queries or technical help that our members may need. As an artist run studio, Birmingham Print Makers is managed by a volunteer committee group, that any member is welcome to join to help with the administration of the studio. 

What we offer our members 

We offer our members 24/7 access to the studio and the chance to exhibit as group throughout the year. Our experienced printmaking members enjoy access to the following facilities available at the studio:

  •  – A U.V. exposure unit size approx. 100 x 80cm
  • Two hand operated screen printing beds for printing onto paper
  • A Bewick and Wilson press bed size approx. 120 x 60cm
  • A Tofko Norup etching & litho press bed size approx. 135 x 78 cm

We have the right to refuse membership on this basis and we may ask you to attend one of our workshops or courses before re-submitting your application.

 PUBLICATIONS:    Images from his school days onwards are included with other artists in over 30 art books written by a range of authors, and he has been commissioned to write numerous magazine articles about his art work. Poems are in  over 20 mixed anthologies.  Among his biographical dictionary inclusions are: ‘The Handbook of Modern British Painters & Printmakers 1900 – 1990’  &  ‘Dictionary of Artists In Britain Since 1945’.

 CHARACTERISTICS OF HIS ART WORK:   Works are often in progress for months (sometimes years) beckoning time-layered interacting detail.  There is a crucial balance between being humble before nature while recording a detailed exploration of it. Plus inward and outward looking while trying to make sense of issues, feelings etc that may also be meaningful to others. Overlapping themes include:

~ Homage to family.

~ Prolonged observation of suburban gardens through windows.  Also flowers in their own right.

~ The life room.  He builds upon and extends his RA Schools experience, while also providing an unbroken continuum of life drawing opportunity for the Birmingham arts community.

~ Self-portraiture  &  portraits of others.

~ An artist’s lay figure as a vehicle to combine self analysis with statements about the “struggling artist” and the “human condition”.

~ Allegoric prints indicative of stages in life.

~ Meaningful fantasy.

   PRESENT SITUATION:  For nearly thirty years Paul has been only too grateful to have been able to give other artists opportunities to fulfil their creative dreams. This has been via his very full timetable of mostly AE teaching.   Continuation with his fine art career is a constant up hill struggle, and achievements  –  such as they are  – often  feel very much against the odds and despite everything.

 

  ASPIRATIONS:   He would like to ask if there is anyone “out there” to help the next stages of his career to happen?  This includes  reaching a wider audience via prestigious exhibition & book projects, with television coverage. He has been working on a  book about his art work,  he feels that he could make a worthwhile contribution to major thematic group shows,  but mostly, he seeks opportunities to shift the balance from teaching to “doing”. This includes  “artist in residencies”,  in-situ-commissions (see above listed themes), and studio research time in sympathetic art colleges/museums etc, where progress with his art work would be in everyone’s interests. He would welcome the opportunity to complete long-term projects in progress, and the prospect of new works via new horizons. He would be happy to discuss any mutually beneficial  ideas.

I specialise in relief printing using lino and card.

I’m captivated by the simplicity but versatility of these materials; their capabilities of conveying very expressive gestures to quite controlled cuts and marks lend themselves to creating bold and striking images.

My inspiration predominantly derives from experiences or what I see around me. Then I combine this with my own vivid imagination. The end results often depict images that are far removed from their original source.

Walter Newton was born in 1981 in Glasgow. He remained there for the next 21 years, attending the Glasgow School of Art before being lured to the bright lights of London and the Royal College of Art. Five years later he moved to Birmingham, where he still lives, drawing pictures and sporadically animating for anyone that will let him near them.

I work as a printmaker and painter producing artwork for interiors. I produce limited edition prints, commissioned paintings, greeting cards and a fabric range; all produced in the UK.

 

The majority of my work is carefully designed and silkscreen printed by me at my studio based in the old Bird’s Custard Factory in Birmingham. My work is mostly inspired by nature and botanicals from walks around the Midlands and sketching in the garden. However, I also love living in the city so the harder urban surroundings also feature in my designs. I have worked hard to create a distinctive style that runs through all my printed work, giving it a timeless quality and design that works with both modern and classic interiors.

Sharon is a printmaker based in Birmingham, UK. 

Her art practice engages with printmaking processes: she creates compositions using photographs, drawings and accidental marks exploring imagery found in popular culture and the urban environment. The images she uses have a personal resonance and inspire a creative response. Images evolve into motifs and abstractions of the originals or are transcribed unaltered.

Manhole Covers

Her current prints are based on the manhole covers, hydrants and boundary boxes we pass by every day. She is interested in the geometric designs, numerals and text that make up their structure. She sees their presence as historical markers of urbanisation and as access points to the networks and infrastructure that underpin our lives: signifiers of the values, industry and organisation that make our cities work.

Profile

My main inspiration comes from the observation of decorative features on buildings which I translate into prints. Presently I am producing a series of colour Aquatints based on old hand painted advertisements found on the side of buildings.

Previously I have produced work based on Art Nouveau buildings in Brussels, Roman remains from both Paris and the South of France, and buildings in London, brighton and The Midlands.

Profile

I am a painter / printmaker, working in oils on canvas and paper, etching and silkscreen Most of my work is made at my studio in southern Spain. The London Print Studio and Birmingham Printmakers are my points of contact when in England. I am a graduate of Northumbria University and the Royal College of art.

 

As a figurative artist, I make work that is a response to the world, looking at life with an interest in landscape, both urban and rural. From initial sketches and thoughts, my ideas then spread out into whatever medium seems best to transform them into a piece of art. All of my work is informed by drawing and a strong use of composition.

 

In my paintings I am concerned with colour, fluidity and the vibrancy of the brush as expressed through the landscape. In screenprint, with its process of colour separation, I take the opportunity to make more graphic work. Finally to etching, where I use the medium in a highly  technical and traditional way, also exploring my interests in history, satire, portraiture and other traditional artistic narratives.

Chris Doran specialises in lithography and has a background in the professional print industry.

Chris is very experimental with processes and his work often evolves and changes during the printmaking process.

He completes small editions, sometimes runs of only two or three with prints and ideas being constantly redeveloped.

Profile

 
Jacqui Dodds is an artist working in paint and printmaking and a member of Birmingham Printmakers. 

My practice revolves around memories of places visited and the objects within them. Images and feelings of these spaces are retraced to create an essence in print and painting. Colour is important and I juxtapose resonating colours to alter the mood of the work. Sometimes I create works devoid of colour such as my blind embossings. 

In the Autumn of 2016 I exhibited ‘Reveal, Conceal’, a collection of screen prints inspired by the Jewellery Quarter at BPN Architects in Birmingham. 

At present some of my prints are in Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery, Shropshire and have been part of a touring exhibition of a ‘Cabinet of Curiosity’ partly funded by Arts Council England.
