Feature Artist - THERESA EASTON

is a printmaker and artist educator based in 
Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK. 

Easton trained in Printmaking at the University of East London and completed a PGCE at Durham New College and an MA in Glass at Sunderland University.

Based in the Ouseburn Valley, the cultural quarter of Newcastle, Easton delivers regular workshops in printmaking & bookmaking. 

Easton’s interest in Artist’s Books began with an international project in 2007 with The Penny Histories, a project working in partnership with Newcastle’s Literary & Philosophical Society (Lit & Phil) and Milan based artist’s collective. Easton is interested in making art work for specific public contexts.  The first visual artist to develop a residency at the Lit & Phi, Easton went on to create a series of printed glass book installations embedded within the library shelves.  Easton is interested in pushing the boundaries of printmaking and enjoys working in cross art forms, combining her knowledge of printmaking with a wide range of materials including brick clay, glass and ceramics.  Heritage interpretation and exploring cultural episodes play an important part in Easton’s practice.
