"I am discovering new possibilities all the time" Boxford printmaker, Bryony Wingfield Digby, talks to Newburytoday about her transition from teacher to artist

Bryony Wingfield Digby

After graduating with a degree in sculpture Bryony went into teaching and worked as an art teacher for several years, never really pursuing her own art work.

That all changed when she had her three children.

"I always considered myself as a teacher rather than an artist and it wasn’t until I had three little children that I started to make my own work," she explains.

“I learnt some pretty basic printmaking skills while I was teaching and loved it, but didn’t have access to a press so was a little bit lost.

"I then randomly came across gel plates last year and have worked solely with them since.

"Everything has come from trial and error and I am discovering new possibilities all the time."

“The natural world, and especially trees, has always been the primary source of inspiration but I am now starting to explore a wider range of subject matter, including buildings, figures and animals and really push myself out of my comfort zone,” she adds.
