Angie Lewin studied Fine Art Printmaking at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design between 1983 and 1986, followed by a year’s part-time postgraduate printmaking at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts.
Inspired by both the clifftops and saltmarshes of the North Norfolk coast and the Scottish Highlands, she depicts these contrasting environments and their native flora in wood engraving, linocut, silkscreen, lithograph and collage. These landscapes are often glimpsed through intricately detailed plantforms. Attracted to the relationships between plant communities on an intimate level, even the fine lines of insect eggs on a flower bud are observed in her work. Still lives often incorporate seedpods, grasses, flints and dried seaweed collected on walking and sketching trips.
As well as designing fabrics and stationery for St Jude’s, which she runs with her husband Simon, Angie has worked for Penguin, Conran, Octopus and Picador, as well as Liberty of London.
For this exhibition we invited 12 contemporary jewellers to respond to the work of printmaker Angie Lewin. Angie’s prints formed part of the exhibition to complement the jewellery and vice versa. Jewellers included Alan Ardiff, Laura Baxter, Jessica Briggs, Shona Carnegie, Paul Finch, Catherine Hills, Clare Knox-Bentham, Julia MacGregor, Ruth Praill, Nikolay Sardamov Simone Salandini and Ruth Tomlinson.
