Teresa Winchester

Printmaker

Biography

Teresa Winchester is a printmaker who lives and works in Brighton on an ancient Columbian press dating back 1842 at the BIP studio in Kemptown. She studied printmaking at Goldsmiths and returned t working on lino prints in recent years after painting for some while. Also s storyteller there is a magic narrative and a sense of dream world in her prints, which are sometimes inspired by the books she read as a young girl. Some themes are traditional with a unique twist, and other do not have a text but aim to spark memories and individual ideas. Images are created from imaginary worlds often recalling that place before sleep where girls dance with hares and rabbits garlanded with red flowers race through dark forests. And the moon is always shining. A love for the natural world and the beauty of plant and animal life enriches the work.
