Carry Akroyd is a printmaker and lives on the edge of the Fens and her work is dominated by its unique landscape and features. She has been commissioned to design book covers amongst which in relation to the works of John Clare.
Her printed works are created using screen print, lino cut and wood engravings. Her natural ability to pick up the process and create marks using the lithographic medium are very evident in her first piece - Undrained Field.
Carry's work has been shown in many publications to include 'The Wood is Sweet' by John Clare, 'The Sea', published by Greenpeace and 'Barnwell' by Paddy Kitchen published by Hamish Hamilton.
