With a degree in Art History and Visual art from Aberystwyth University, Laura Boswell is a printmaker specialising in rural landscape. Having trained in Japan, she now works in classical Japanese water-based woodblock and reduction linocut. Her prints are never a specific depiction of geographical reality, more an evocation of place, weather or time of day. Her ambition is to offer space, escape and a sense of scale and season through her figurative landscape prints. She is a member of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers and has work in national collections in The House of Lords and The National Library of Wales. She writes a monthly column for Artists and Illustrators Magazine.
