Anna Tosney

I’m a Yorkshire based artist/printmaker, specialising in drypoint and monoprint techniques. I work from my studio on Otley Street in Skipton. As well as selling work directly, I also exhibit in a variety of galleries across the UK.
When I’m not in the studio, I can often be found stalking farmers and admiring sheep and cattle. My inspiration comes from the world around me – The changing weather and seasons, the animals in the fields, the birds in the trees, the farmers and drystone wallers at work.
I have experimented a lot in the field of printmaking and have developed a method of mono-printing using drypoint and monotype techniques. I also sometimes work with collagraph plates. The ink I use is a soy-based ink, making it kinder to the environment and to me!
