In this episode I talk to Print Maker Laura Boswell. We begin the podcast touching on how Laura first became interested in both Lino cut and Japanese wood block printing, and how a chance catalyst led her to pursuing a career into the arts. We move on to talk about the differences between craft and art, artisan and artist, before looking at the word ‘style’ and its connotations. This leads us into the importance of thinking critically about our own work, to develop as both artists and teachers. Following this, we talk about the traditional principles of Japanese wood block printing; touching on colour combinations and the use of our intuition to guide our composition. Finally, Laura shares her experiences with personal mental health challenges, offering words of advice based on her own coping strategies.
