Jenny Smith-McOnie creates original hand-made prints on paper and specialises in the collagraph and drypoint printmaking techniques.
Much of Jenny’s time is spent in Wigtownshire in Dumfries and Galloway, South West Scotland. Her work explores the region’s diverse coastal landscape and she is particularly interested in the rich textures and constantly changing colours that can be seen in the area.
The word ‘collagraph’ is taken from the word ‘collage’. Prints are produced from collaged plates with a highly textured surface, resulting in an embossed print.
The method produces unpredictable results and enables Jenny to create dynamic, textural, vibrant prints.
Talking to Jenny about her work and processes is absolutely fascinating, so if you’re near Ivinghoe over the weekend of November 29th & 30th, don’t miss the opportunity to meet Jenny in person.
