Based in Christchurch, Bournemouth, Dorset. Specialising in Contemporary British Art.
Sarah Humby is a Dorset based printmaker and painter. The rolling landscape of Dorset and The Jurassic coastline is the main source of inspiration in her instinctive and expressive work. Much of her work is based on sketches and drawings made out in the field and seeks to explore her interaction with and response to, the environment.
A word about printmaking techniques
MONOPRINTS are made using printing plates that have permanent features on them. They can be thought of as variations on a theme, with the theme resulting from some permanent features being found on the plate—lines, textures—that persist from print to print.
MONOTYPES produce a unique print; most of the ink is removed during the initial pressing. Stencils, watercolour, solvents, brushes, and other tools are often used to embellish a monotype print. Monotypes can be spontaneously executed and with no previous sketch.
