Holly Magdalene Scott is an Artist/Printmaker based in Teesdale, Durham.
Known for her detailed, sensitive hand-printed linocuts, Holly’s work conveys her lifelong enchantment with the natural world.
Long since spellbound by birds, and conscious of their significance in everyday life, her work honours the tradition of mankind’s fascination and constant dialogue with our avian contemporaries.
An ‘accidental’ printmaker, Holly was drawn to the enduring, ageless process of relief printmaking, finding it the perfect medium to collate information from both the natural and inner worlds.
Borne from a strong connection to the land, and inspired by childhood memories and chance encounters with wildlife, her hand-coloured lino prints touch upon folklore and seek to evoke the timelessness of animal lives.
Awarded ‘Best Newcomer’ at Great North Art Show 2019, her practice continues to grow.
