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.

2015 - News and new work


It's been a busy couple of months with an exciting invitation to join a new gallery, The Contemporary Six in Manchester, work going to the Koywood Gallery in Cardiff with the RCA, and five new editions completed, including three new monochrome works produced for Tegfryn Gallery's next exhibtion 'The sea, the sea'. Two of these are available in Gallery 1 whilst the third (below) is available exclusively from Tegfryn Gallery.


Two new cats, 'The artist's muse' and 'The artist's companion' have been added to Gallery 3. A step-by-step look at how they were created is covered on Facebook (just head for the Linocut Friends group or my AnnL Printmaker page).


At last, my current greetings cards series have been added to the site. A new larger 5" x 7" size card and 6 new images. Apologies for the long wait.


I'm delighted to share the news that I've been invited to join a wonderful and diverse group of printmakers at For Arts Sake in Ealing.


It's been a busy start to the New Year with three editions completed in January. Cwm Idwal, and in particular the Idwal Syncline, has been my inspiration for all three. All three prints have been added to the landscape gallery (Feb 15th)

This is the third and final (for now) print, a combination of reduction and multi-block method.
