About : Cate Gibson - Artist based in Alderley Edge, Cheshire

I studied Foundation Art and Spatial Design at Bournemouth & Poole College of Art. I always continued to paint and 7 years ago returned to printmaking, which I feel truly lends itself to my designs and drawings.

I mainly do relief prints but love to etch and occasionally screenprint. I am particularly drawn to botanical subjects as I find the history of botanical illustration fascinating.

After many fruitful years of experimenting with different forms of print at Hot Bed Press, I now work in my own studio at home where I am surrounded by inspiration from the beautiful Cheshire countryside.

I have exhibited my work in Open Up North, Stockport Open, Warrington Contemporary Open, RK Burt Gallery in London and The Portico Library and Gallery in Manchester.
