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, an original relief printing process, to interpret and record the area in which I live, including landscape and wildlife. 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. Private Presses I have worked with include The Fleece Press, Wild Hawthorn Press- in collaboration with Ian Hamilton Finlay, Whittington Press, Black Pennel Press, Partick Press, Perpetua Press and Folio Society.
In 2001 my partner Nick Carter and I restored a croft cottage as a studio and gallery at Colbost, NW Skye. Normally we are open to visitors Monday to Friday, Easter to October,from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. November to February by appointment, email or call 01470511367. Prints can be purchased by mail order.
