Annabelle Oppenheimer
artist printmaker

I love the processes involved in printmaking. I work mostly in intaglio (etching and collagraph) and relief (lino and woodcut) but also in monotype and monoprint.


Everything begins with drawing. Printmaking can be a slow and almost contemplative way of working. There is always an element of surprise and, even in an edition from the same plate, each print is unique.


Experimentation is essential to creativity and it does result in some outcomes being put down to experience. Nothing can be taken for granted!


I like to work in layers, often using more than one plate, combining intaglio and relief printing. I am inspired by my immediate surroundings in my garden, the local Herefordshire landscape
and further afield. I am fascinated by the ever-changing light and the patterns it makes. On
my walks and wanderings, small details, shapes and movements, along with subsequent
sketches, are utilised in the print process.

I welcome visitors by appointment to my studio and some of my work can also be seen at
Oxenham Art, Leominster and Mi-Frame Gallery, The Hop Pocket.
