Laura Boswell ARE – Printmaker

Laura Boswell

I am printmaker working with linocut, woodblock and traditional Japanese woodblock printing. I have a degree in Art History/Visual Art from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth and am elected to the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers.

I have attended three printmaking residencies in Japan, studying woodblock printmaking with master craftsmen and my book ‘Making Japanese Woodblock Prints’, Crowood Press, was published in 2019. My second book with Crowood ‘Linocut and Reduction Printing, Design and Techniques’ came out in early 2022

In addition to my printmaking, I run a YouTube channel as Laura Boswell Printmaker, devoted to sharing my printmaking skills. Teaching is an important part of my practice and I teach classes in both woodblock and linocut techniques.

My prints feature in national collections including the Buckinghamshire County Museum, The House of Lords and the National Library of Wales. I also have prints in the Nagasawa Art Park collection and the MI-Lab Print Collection in Japan.
