Deborah Snell

I like to capture a moment, usually an unexpected one and I use mainly printmaking, drawing and pen and ink.

I love the atmospheric qualities of etching and mezzotint for the way they capture the spontaneity of a drawing.

I am a member of Northern Print in Newcastle and I also exhibit and sell my prints.

Old toys and puppets inspire me and musty old boxes full of secrets from the past.

I admire the work of artist Paula Reggo, the film maker and creator Oliver Postgate and the animator Yuri Norstein.

When I’m not creating art I like to collect puppets and tin toys, visit old traditional pubs, watch Russian animation and grow giant pumpkins.
