Adrienne Craddock

How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

Printmaker

My most recent work explores the technique of Monoprinting. More akin to painting as these are ‘one off’s’ not editions, although it is possible to make several versions. ‘The Garden’ is a series of work I have been making inspired by the Adam and Eve story. It’s loosely based on musings in the garden, experiences of love, life and the serpent lurking in the undergrowth.

I am enjoying this painterly, looser and less graphic approach. I am loving the feeling of scraping into the ink, drawing with a printing roller and applying layers of colour.

I am inspired by the lush Herefordshire Landscape and observations of the mini dramas of bird and beast which take place in the garden environment.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Making art for me means ‘Keeping a green branch in your heart and you will always find a bird singing there’ - an African proverb which I interpret as meaning, to continue to be curious about the world, to keep on learning and discovering, to be playful and daring.
