About Annette Rolston

Image for Annette Rolston

I am a professional artist exhibiting both as an individual and in collaboration with other artists and writers.

Working mainly on paper I draw quite spontaneously, allowing imagery to emerge with little conscious interference. The drawings are of intricate patterns and archetypal symbols relating to themes such as the family, fertility, reproduction and the four elements. There are also lots of images of nature and especially trees and leaves. Mixed media drawings form the main body of my current work.
As a printmaker I mostly use the techniques of relief print and collograph to make colourful figurative and also abstract images.

I am an artist and tutor with over 15 years of teaching experience in running workshops for schools, tutoring evening classes and teaching private students. With my unique mobile-printing-press I am able to offer a comprehensive range of techniques and classes for all ages and abilities at a large variety of venues.
