I am a printmaker based in North Yorkshire, UK. Following my graduation from an Illustration degree course, I have been making prints for over 23 years. The excitement of peeling off the paper after I have wound my inked and wiped printing plate through my etching press remains as compelling and exciting as the first time that I did it!

My preferred methods are collagraph, linocut and monotype but I’ll try my hand and experiment with any printmaking method and am always seeking to discover new techniques. I exhibit my prints regularly and sell them in various galleries throughout the UK, Sweden and USA. You can view them and find out more at my website: www.hestercox.com.

When I am not creating prints, I often teach printmaking workshops to adults and children. I am a keen fellrunner and my interests include the countryside, film, poetry, natural history and growing fruit and vegetables.
