Facebook: Anja Percival: Printmaker

I am a printmaker, and my etchings portray my experience of the landscape. I am fascinated by the different atmospheres that light creates in both our rural and urban environments. I use variation in light, form, texture and colour to magnify the moods and sensations of the places I experience.

In July 2005 I moved temporarily to Copenhagen, Denmark, to work at the restricted access facilities at The National Workshops for Arts and Crafts, at the Gammel Dok Pakhus in Strandgade. .

Whilst visiting Denmark, I discovered Fyns Grafiske Værksted in Odense, and so for the last few years I have been dividing my time between printmaking workshops in Denmark and England: Fyns Grafiske Værksted in Odense; and ‘Northern Print' in Newcastle;

I have a studio in Fowlers Yard, Durham; Unit 2 Fowlers Yard, Back Silver Street, Durham DH1 3RA,
