Artist/Printmaker Ann Lewis' work proves that although considered by some as one of the simplest forms of printmaking, linocutting should never be underestimated as a challenging, creative and exciting medium capable of producing a broad range of evocative images. Ann produces original, limited edition, linocuts in her studio overlooking the Ogwen Valley in North Wales.

Ann's prints, paintings and drawings are almost without exception inspired by the North Wales landscape.

Ann's work can currently be seen at the Tegfryn Gallery, Menai Bridge, Anglesey, Galeri in Betws-y-Coed, The Royal Cambrian Academy in Conwy, Tonnau/Oriel y Môr in Pwllheli, White Lion Street Gallery, Tenby and Lion Street Gallery, Hay on Wye.

2014 - New and ongoing work and news

November 23rd - Studio time The final Christmas exhbition delivery of work has been done and I'm hoping to have two, or even three weeks valuable studio time in the next month. I've a couple of prints I want to finish this year and ideas are already starting to bubble to the surface for 2015.

October 9th - New location, new subject The majority of my work is done in, or close to my home patch of North Wales but a trip to the South coast at the end of August inspired something quite different. 'Storm approaching, Birling Gap' has been added to the landscape gallery as has 'Late September, Tenby Harbour'. Here's a glimpse of a section of Birling Gap as it sits on the drying rack.

August 14th - New work, new walls The busiest few weeks of the year are almost over and whilst exhibiting in new galleries and further afield has meant a lot of travelling, it's been a very worthwhile venture, as work has sold well.

Just added to the Landscape gallery is a second interpretation of Pistyll Cain waterfall. An edition of 18, 'Birdsong after the rain, Pistyll Cain' is currently available to view at Oriel Tegfryn, Menai Bridge, Anglesey.
