Claire Drinkwater

I have been a printmaker for over twenty years. While living and working in London, I studied printmaking first at The City Lit, and then at Morley College. Formerly a member of the Printmakers' Council, I showed work with them all over the country. Later, I joined forces with fellow printmakers to exhibit at the Morley Gallery.

Since moving to Oxford, I have become a member of Oxford Printmakers Co-operative, and of the Oxford Art Society, exhibiting with them at local venues.

I enjoy experimenting with a variety of print processes, specialising in etching, but also using collagraph and linocut or a combination of different methods. I draw my inspiration mostly from the natural world, often developing a series of prints around a theme such as trees or water. Interpretation varies from the literal to the more abstract. In 2019 I took part in the First Impression project, a collaboration between OPC and the University of Oxford Museum of Natural History.
