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 been making prints since 2012, creating a simple studio at her home in Bicester to enable her to develop skills to the highest standards. Alexandra has recently been exploring how painting can fit into her printmaking practise.
Alexandra is a best seller on the Artfinder website, selling over 700 works internationally in six years. Her linocuts have been hung in the Royal Academy, the Bankside Gallery and the Mall Galleries in London.
