I’m Russell, originally from Shropshire, living near York for the last 15 years. I started printmaking about 5 years ago on the Access to Art & Design course at York College, carried on during my MA at Leeds Arts University and have been a member of the York Printmakers group for about a year.
Most of my work comes from studying the spaces around us – what they look like, our experience of them, and what they tell us about the world we live in. I like to work with strong colours and patterns.
If you want to see some of my work, follow the link in my bio to www.russellhughesart.co.uk.
Over the next two weeks the York Printmakers will be posting about our work and inspirations - we hope that you will follow along on @yorkprintmakers and #yorkprintmakers, to get to know us better and see the range of skills within the group. Enjoy the "show".
