Anna Tosney - Skipton, Yorkshire

Artist/printmaker specialising in drypoint and monoprint techniques

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 monoprinting 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!

Thanks for continuing to buy British handmade ethical gifts & unique art from Cherrydidi. Finding that perfect gift for a Mum, Dad, brother, sister, your kids, girlfriend, boyfriend, special woman or man in your life, a special friend or even the home, can be a real challenge so we’re glad to have helped.
