Lee Kellgren is an artist printmaker living and working in South West England. 

Having studied an MA in computer graphics, she has now chosen to return to the textures and challenges of traditional fine art printmaking- creating atmospheric original etchings which are hand inked and hand printed in limited editions. She exhibits widely in the South West of England.

 The artwork uses two contrasting techniques. The first uses traditional copper plate etching, using marks and acid with soft-ground, sugar-lift and aquatint to create  prints with a painterly quality.

 The second technique uses ultraviolet light biting into sensitive polymer Toyobo plates to create photogravure etchings. Images are created from photographs, manipulated acetate positives, x-ray film or images drawn on translucent film. This technique creates etching prints with a delicate, other-worldly quality.

 Previous artwork has been created after trips to SW England, Italy, South Africa and New England. With a studio now based in the emerging enclave of artists in Penryn, her current artwork is inspired by the luminous skies, water and changing landscapes of Cornwall.
