Meet your tutor: Sue Rowland
Sue is inspired by the nature and landscape seen daily from her riverside studio or out on the fells. She is fascinated by old folklore stories about plants and animals which she researches when creating her detailed, illustrative lino prints. Her degree in textiles from Central St Martins and career in the textile industry has led to a love of pattern, texture and colour which are so important in her designs. Sue has many years’ experience teaching in schools and the community and was a tutor at Leicester Print Workshop until moving to Cumbria. She loves inspiring others to develop their own creativity within print. See more at Sue Rowland’s facebook page. Sue Rowland is a member of Cumbria Printmakers.
