Tricia Newell studied illustration and graphic design at Ipswich Art School in the seventies and spent many years working as a freelance illustrator of books.
Tricia's first introduction to printmaking was as a teenager, when she was invited to help Joe Lubbock print the etchings for his limited edition books. This led to her attending evening classes in etching at Ipswich Art School. In 2015 Tricia attended a workshop at Sudbourne Park Printmakers where she discovered a love for woodcuts.
Like many artists she is inspired by the natural world, and has always been fascinated by the detail and pattern within it. Tricia was born and raised on a market garden so has always been surrounded by plants and they usually feature in her work in one way or another.
