Christine Calow - Artist

 

profile

Born in Cambridgeshire, I completed my Foundation Course at Cambridge School of Art, where I was chosen by Edward Bawden to receive the annual Printmaking Travel Award. I subsequently obtained my B.A. (hons) Degree in Printed Textiles at Loughborough College of Art and Design, which ignited my love of screen printing.

I have worked as a fabric designer and printer, and have also taught on Foundation Courses in Bedfordshire, Essex, London and Surrey.

I currently create richly coloured and textured paper collages and hand pulled limited edition silkscreen prints. I have exhibited widely for a number of years, and my work is in private collections in the UK and abroad.

I am a member of Espacio Gallery in London, and also regularly exhibit with the Beds, Bucks and Herts Print Society.

Some of my passions are travel (especially to India and Greece), the paintings and prints of Albert Irvin and Hans Hofmann, and the expressive use of colour.
