Meg Ricketts

Painter and Printmaker

My latest project has been looking at the visible and invisible in nature. My inspiration comes from the local landscape that surrounds me here on the edge of the North York Moors.

I have been particularly interested in the concept of slowing down and seeing the small details in nature, of colour, pattern and constant change, as the seasons unfold.

I like to start a new project by recording my subject in detailed drawings and watercolour sketches. I will then take this into painting or printing.

I enjoy painting in both acrylic and oils and have recently explored painting onto natural wood, found on our own property (cut rounds from a fallen tree.) The subject and the found natural wood blend together, by looking at nature through the window of a piece of nature.

In my printmaking I use different techniques such as collograph printing, dry point etching and lino printing. I do both detailed images as well as more abstract pieces. I have been exploring the layering of printed images and different handmade papers.
