Welcome to AsKew

 

 

Askew prints is an exciting new venture I am in the process of setting up  to show the paper & print works I am creating, all of which are for sale . So if you see anything you like just email me julia_barton@btinternet.com

Most of my time  as an artist is  spent making sculptures & installations    www.julia-barton.co.uk  on the streets, in theatres, parks and gardens, so  its wonderful to take time to play in the studio on a smaller scale.  Having always loved mono-printing  from objects and pressed flowers I invested in a roller press to enable me to make relief prints.

The results I am now achieving a year later are so exciting.

Fascinated by  line and texture I began by printing a series of wire drawings, gradually understanding the pressure required for different  thicknesses of materials the  effects achieved are beautifully embossed. Take a look

Texture and surface detail are an essential element of  my work which I am now translating into print. The results of which I am compiling into sample books.
