Operating virtually from home, also hoping to display at Bicester Hotel and Spa.
For Alexandra Buckle, inspiration comes from countryside walks and more recently, from a trip to Japan. She captures the light, shadow and colour of her favourite scenery as hand printed reduction linocuts. This relief printing technique involves cutting and printing several layers of colour from the same block of lino in order to build up an image. Mistakes cannot be rectified and the block is destroyed in the process.
Alexandra has focussed solely on her printmaking since 2012, creating a simple studio at her home in Bicester to enable her to develop skills to the highest standards. More recently, Alexandra has returned to painting which she intends to practise alongside the printmaking for the time being, to see where it leads.
Alexandra is a founder member of the Buckinghamshire Craft Guild, the guild has a wonderful shop space in Stoke Mandeville which showcases the very best craft from local artists. She is a best seller on the Artfinder website, selling over 650 works internationally in six years. Her linocuts have been hung in the Royal Academy, the Bankside Gallery and the Mall Galleries in London.
