Studio Printmakers' Collective

 

Toni Hartill

Art has always been an intrinsic part of my life. Experiences of learning and teaching various printmaking techniques as a secondary school teacher ignited the desire to further explore printmaking in my own arts practice although I continue to employ multiple ways of expressing my ideas in a variety of media. Previously a painter, printmaking encourages spontaneity and


experimentation to enter my work keeping me motivated and challenged. Inspired by colour, texture, pattern and form in the natural environment I am drawn to look for beauty in unexpected places and I endeavour to draw the viewer in to my experiences, and to look with new eyes at their own environments.
