My name is Jennifer Garthwright and I am an artist printmaker based in North West England. After studying graphic design and printmaking many years ago, I have recently rekindled my interest by becoming a member of the well-renowned Hot Bed Press Print Studio in Salford.

My work focuses primarily on the people I see around me. Although the characters in my work are fictional, they are based on the common elements that we recognise in each other - which means that viewers of my work are often moved to comment that they feel as though they 'know' the individuals portrayed.

I split my printmaking time between Hot Bed Press and my lovely, light home studio (hence The Lightbox!). Over the course of Lockdown, when travel to Salford was restricted, I was lucky enough to convert a mangle for home printing, and it is my pride and joy!

Most of my work uses the different techniques of etching, collagraph, and silkscreen. Each print is created individually by hand, and even though they are usually printed in multiples, known as an edition, there are subtle differences between each print.
