Lee Kellgren is an artist printmaker specializing in etching.Lee Kellgren 2

Having studied an MA in computer graphics, she has chosen to return to the textures and challenges of traditional fine art printmaking – creating delicate and atmospheric original etchings which are hand inked and hand printed in limited editions. She is a member of Spike Print Studio, North Bristol Artists and West Bristol Arts. She exhibits widely in the South West of England.

Lee Kellgren 3She works in two contrasting techniques. The first uses traditional copper plate etching, using marks and acid with soft-ground, sugar-lift and aquatint to create prints with a painterly quality.

The second technique uses ultraviolet light biting into sensitive polymer Toyobo plates to create photogravure etchings. Images are created from photographs, manipulated acetate positives, x-ray film or images drawn on translucent film. This technique creates etching prints with a delicate, other-worldly quality.

Current artwork is inspired by places of personal significance in Bristol, Lee Kellgren 4Cumbria, Cornwall, Italy, South Africa and New England.
