Joanna Padfield studied art and design at Norwich School of Art. She then went on to gain a BSc Hons in Architectural Design Technology at University, followed by a career in Architecture. Her love of art and design has stayed with her.
Drawn to the graphic quality of linocuts she has now set up her own printmaking studio, producing original limited-edition linocuts. She comments, â€œI like the process of cutting fresh lino with sharp tools and the anticipation of peeling the paper off an inked block, revealing the individuality of each hand-pulled print.â€
With a love of nature and the natural environment, her inspiration comes from her surroundings. Wildlife, the woods, fields, heathland, the sea, and the salt marshes all provide inspiration. Every print is hand-pulled, and therefore proudly shows the various marks left from the rough surface of the Lino block.
Some of Joanna's work has now been made into fine art greetings cards by the publishing company Lanternfish Publishing.
