Teresa Winchester is a printmaker who lives and works in Brighton on an ancient Columbian press dating back to 1842 at the BIP studio in Kemptown. She studied printmaking at Goldsmiths and has returned to working on lino prints in recent years after painting for some while. Also a storyteller there is an element of magic narrative and a sense of the dream world in her prints, which are sometimes inspired by the books she read as a young girl. Some themes are traditional with a unique twist, and others do not have a text but aim to spark memories and individual ideas. Images are created from imaginary worlds often recalling that place before sleep where girls dance with hares and rabbits garlanded with red flowers race through dark forests. And the moon is always shining. A love of the natural world and the beauty of plant and animal life enriches the work.
