Green Cat Scratching (Linocut)

Artist Statement
Moyra Byford“I trained at Lowestoft School of Art and St Martins College of Art, London, and lectured in Fine Art and Design in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, London and Cheshire before retraining in Art Conservation and Restoration. I pursued this career for over 20 years, also running private courses in restoration for students from many countries. I am a Guild Commended Framer, and have tutored many commercial and private courses in framing. I have had four books and fifteen videos on restoration and framing published

I continued to paint throughout my working career, but over the last 15 years have developed an interest in printmaking. Now I divide my time equally between painting and printmaking. I work in lino and wood for relief prints and etching, and collagraph for intaglio. I have recently started lithography. I am a member of a local art group, Southwold Art Circle and Gainsborough’s House Print Workshop, and I work on lithography at Curwen Studios.

My subjects are East Coast landscapes and seascapes, natural forms and animals, but after visiting Spain several times recently I find that a few Spanish subjects are creeping in.”
