Artist profile

Kate Brooks Prints

I am a screen printer who is inspired by being outdoors in the beautiful countryside of Derbyshire where I live. I love to create vibrant prints of landscapes that capture the colours of each season.

I was first introduced to screen printing whilst creating a fabric collection for an end-of-year fashion show at college many years ago! About eight years ago, I rediscovered my love of printing at Sheffield Print Club – I have been creating hand-pulled screen prints ever since and enjoy showing my work at art events across the country.

My design process begins by taking lots of observational photos of landscapes, trees, flowers and hedgerows whilst out walking. All of my designs are hand-drawn, recently using Procreate and I create my layers on Adobe Photoshop before heading to my local print studio to prepare my screens. Most of my printing is done in my little garden studio (when it is warm enough!)

I also have a range of giclée prints and complementary greetings cards, many of them for the festive season, digitally-printed on recycled card.
