Seashore by Sally Hill

Sally Hill was the winner of the Derby Print Open Banks Mill award in 2019 with her linocut ‘Beach Huts’. The prize included the opportunity to have a solo exhibition, and her work can now be seen at the Banks Mill foyer gallery, after a lengthy wait due to the Pandemic. Titled ‘Seashore’, it runs from 19 Sep to 7 Oct, weekdays 9am-3pm and showcases thirty prints inspired by the East coast.

Having studied English and Fine Art at Exeter University, Sally originally worked as a freelance book illustrator and art teacher. Printmaking has always been part of her practice, and in recent years her linocuts have become her main focus.

Sally comments: “I was brought up by the sea and feel drawn to the vitality of the coast and its wide open spaces as a subject. The shoreline’s constantly changing with the tides, weather and movement of people, and that gives me scope for my particular interest in composition. I find the printmaking process equally inspiring. Working within the restrictions of linocutting can stimulate ideas and bring a focus to them. Most of all, I like the energy and directness of marks carved from lino.”

Sally works from her studio at home in Leicestershire, where she has a Rollaco Press. She is a member of Leicester Print Workshop and Leicester Society of Artists.
