Peta Lloyd

My artistic sensibilities come from a childhood immersed within artistic communities. These formative experiences have produced an artistic freedom that draws inspiration from my surroundings that is evident within my work.
I am a self-taught artist that takes creative risks in the work I do and learn at all times about new opportunities to express myself in.
My art evokes a range of connections to the viewer, as layer by layer is a new discovery. I have immersed myself by practicing techniques of print and various other disciplines and made these uniquely my own. Over the past years my work has been exhibited within Australia, US, New Zealand and England as well as published in various magazines. It’s a privilege to share this art freedom and exploration with others.

PRINT + BOOKS + BOX

There is a richness of history, memory and time held within the layers of surfaces such as those seen on ancient stone walls, timber walls and doors and steel surfaces to name a few. In this workshop you will create a palimpsest* of marks on paper and fabric, using a variety of mark making techniques including; staining, dyeing, rusting, and mono printing with hand cut stencils and other objects. Sometimes you will be effacing what is there and at other times you will be superimposing further marks and images using intaglio and relief printmaking techniques** further marks will be made using hand stitching and piercing.
