Angie LewinBorn: 1963
Place of Birth: Cheshire
Angie Lewin was born in Cheshire and trained at Central School of Art and Design, London before attending Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts and Central St Martins College of Art and Design, London. After working in London as an illustrator she studied horticulture and a move to Norfolk prompted a return to printmaking.
She says: "Inspired by both the clifftops and saltmarshes of the North Norfolk coast and the Scottish Highlands, I depict these contrasting environments and their native flora in wood engraving, linocut, silkscreen, lithograph and collage. These landscapes are often glimpsed through intricately detailed plantforms."
In 2006 she was elected to The Royal Society of Painter Printmakers and in 2008 to The Society of Wood Engravers. In 2010 she was elected to The Art Workers Guild.
