Somerset based artist
Living in Somerset and originally trained as a graphic designer, Shelley worked in London, Bristol and Bath for over 20 years. She’s now an artist and printmaker, mainly specialising in linocut printmaking as well as an “artist in schools’ throughout the southwest of England, teaching and lecturing printmaking.
Being self taught she produced ‘Magpies’ which was sold to The Atkinson Gallery for their private Collection in 2017. Shortly afterwards, she won the 21st NOA’s Original Print Prize with Cinegirl. The biggest open Art Competition in the UK with over 4000 entrants. The winning entry was exhibited at The Bargehouse, Oxo Tower, Wharf and as a grand finale, exhibited at the critically acclaimed Pallant House Gallery, home to one of the best collections of Modern British Art in the UK.
“Art provokes emotions within people, that’s the whole point. When I’m creating it provokes an emotion and a feeling during the process.”
Giclée is a French term meaning “to spray”, referring to how an inkjet printer works and how giclée prints are usually produced. These large format inkjet printers use small spraying devices that can both match colour and apply ink precisely, giving artists a high-quality print of their original art.
A print is a reproduction of an original artwork, which can be made through a variety of methods such as lithography, screen printing, or linocut printing. Giclée printing is a method of creating high-quality digital prints using specialised inkjet printers. The main difference between a print and a giclée is the way they are produced. While prints are typically made through a physical process involving ink and a printing press, giclée prints are created using digital files and high-quality inkjet printers. Giclée prints are known for their vibrant colours, sharp detail, and longevity, making them a popular choice for fine art reproductions.
Yes, giclée prints can look very good! The quality of a giclée print depends on a variety of factors, including the quality of the printer, the type of ink used, and the quality of the paper or canvas. When done correctly, giclée prints can have a level of detail and colour accuracy that is difficult to achieve with traditional printing methods. However, it’s important to note that not all giclée prints are created equal, and it’s important to choose a reputable printer who uses high-quality materials and takes care to ensure the best possible print quality.
Yes, giclée prints are generally considered to be fine art! While some purists may argue that only original artworks can be considered fine art, the reality is that giclée prints are widely accepted in the art world as a legitimate form of fine art reproduction. Many artists choose to make giclée prints of their original artwork as a way to reach a wider audience and make their work more accessible to collectors who may not be able to afford an original piece. Giclée prints are often used for limited edition runs and are typically signed and numbered by the artist, further cementing their status as fine art.
