Angie Lewin (born c.1964) is a British printmaker working in linocut, wood engraving, lithography and screen printing. Lewin studied BA(Hons) Fine Art Printmaking at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design between 1983 and 1986, followed by a year’s part-time postgraduate printmaking at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts. After working in London as an illustrator, Lewin studied horticulture. A move to Norfolk prompted a return to printmaking, and she is now based near Aylsham. Inspired by both the clifftops and saltmarshes of the North Norfolk coast and the Scottish Highlands, Lewin depicts these contrasting environments and their native flora in wood engraving, linocut, silkscreen, lithograph and collage. These landscapes are often glimpsed through intricately detailed plant forms. Pencil and watercolour drawings are made on her walks and also back in the studio.This made her carry on with perusing still life. Attracted to the relationships between plant communities on an intimate level, even the fine lines of insect eggs on a flower bud are observed in her work.
