Catherine Greenwood is an innovative printmaker specialising in etching and block print.
Greenwood studied at Camberwell school of Arts and Crafts, K.I.A.D. and University of Maine USA, she is a Print fellow at City & Guilds, London and also runs her own Green Print Studio in West Sussex. She has exhibited widely, notably at the RA Summer Exhibition, Greenwich Maritime Gallery, Handel and Hendrix Museum and The Houses of Parliament.
In summer 2018, Greenwood was commissioned to create a block printed textile design for the National Trust property Sheffield Park, for their water-lily festival. She also exhibited her latest etchings, Standen NT, in an exhibition titled ‘Beyond Impression’.
Greenwood creates prints that use traditional etching techniques such as soft ground and sugar lift aquatint which translate her love of drawing, painting and gestural mark-making into ethereal etchings often over-layed with Chine Colle. She also creates photo-etchings using projected imagery generated by her Body Image photographic projects. Both approaches show her attraction to natural patterns, light, colour and the elements. She produces works which are expressive, environmentally conscious, contemplative and quietly ambitious.
