Kathleen Lindsley, wood engraver and illustrator
Born in Gibraltar in 1951, studied fine art at Newcastle Upon Tyne. Introduced to wood engraving by Leo Wyatt in 1974. Resident in Scotland since 1976 and full time in Skye since 1987.
I employ the medium of wood engraving, a relief printing process, to interpret and record the area in which I live. The blocks are usually end-grain boxwood, sometimes lemonwood. I edition my prints on fine papers using an Albion hand press. Sometimes I work to commission in illustration and design. I undertake bookplates, letterheads and house portraits.
In 2001 my partner Nick Carter and I restored a croft cottage as a studio and gallery at Colbost, NW Skye. We are open to visitors Monday to Saturday, March to October and Monday, Wednesday and Friday, November to February.
