The Artist - Steve Manning SWAc Assoc
Steve is a prize-winning printmaker living and working in Exeter. He learnt his printmaking skills at the acclaimed Double Elephant Print Workshop in Exeter and still uses their wonderful Victorian Albion press to produce his relief prints. The Devon countryside serves as inspiration, particularly the Exe Estuary with its ever-changing moods, dictated by weather, wind and tides. Most of Steveís prints seek to capture a brief moment of stillness amongst the constant movement of the natural world, whether itís a flight of birds over the mudflats or racing clouds on a blustery day.
