The main printmaking techniques used by Nicola Slattery are Collograph and Drypoint. These lead naturally to small hand made editions of prints in which each image is unique. Editions are rarely of more than twelve prints and are often less than this due to the ephemeral nature of the plate used to create the print. All are printed by hand directly by Nicola Slattery who signs and numbers each individual print.
Prints can be shipped to most places in the world and many have been sent to the USA and other locations around the world without any problems. To enquire about purchasing a limited edition print please call - any day 9am - 9pm - 01986 788853

A few words about about hand made limited edition prints:
The arrival of computers into the world of art has blured many boundaries and much excellent work is produced by new technology. However a hand made print is a work which should involve the direct input of the artist hand into the production of the print.
All the prints by Nicola Slattery are hand made original limited edition prints. They should not be confused with photo mechanically produced prints which are often in effect "photocopies" of original works and are not works originally conceived as prints.
"For me there are occasions when I've made a print and it inspires me to create a painting with a similar idea and composition in mind. Then at other times it works the other way round and I create a print inspired by one of my paintings. They are not intended to be copies of the other but instead are simply different workings of the same idea or image in my mind by different media." Nicola Slattery.
Hand made limited edition prints have been made by artists for centuries and offer art collectors an affordable way to collect original art works.
The Norwich Print Fair is a great place to learn more about printmaking. Since its inception in 1995 The Norwich Print Fair has become one of the best loved independent shows selling contemporary, original, hand-made prints in East Anglia. Nicola Slattery has exhibited at the fair intermitently since 1996 and hopes to exhibit there again in 2018.
