Jairo Zaldua & Nicoela Green


Jairo and Nicola create imagery together through the mediums of print and three-dimensional art. Combining the appearance of the sculptural and the two-dimensional surface of the printed image. Observing the archaic qualities of neglected posters and derelict buildings where a sense of age and history has left its mark, they have assembled an ongoing exploration into themes that include old propaganda and billboard posters, typography, symbolism and German expressionist cinema. As old posters decay and the original meanings become irrelevant, they transfigure into something more suggestive. With the use of a blowtorch, acrylics, screenprinting and digital facilities, Jairo and Nicola seek to push this process further. From found objects (wood, scrap metal and old victorian doors) to site specific installation and interactive performance, they have embarked on work where layers reveal layers and a sense of age, time and texture are clearly present.

Jairo specialized in Fine Art Printmaking at the University of Hertfordshire and Nicola studied Ceramic Art at the Roehampton Institute.


Janet Wilson


Janet Wilson lives and works in London. She is a member of East London Printmakers and the Printmakers Council and makes work based on the landscape. The prints are collagraphs, etchings, monoprints and lithographs which aim to evoke both a sense of place and the sublime character of the natural world. Inspiration comes from the movement of weather and tides, in mapping, aerial views and examination of scale – from the great to the microscopic.

Amanda Taylor


I particularly enjoy working with lino, collographs and etching.  I like to use nature as a source of inspiration and often turn the images into abstract forms. Sometimes I like to select a fragment to abstact and enlarge.

The use of colour is important to me and I have achieved some successful results with viscosity prints using layers of colour.  I like to produce small variable editions and like to contrast strong flat colour with interesting texture.


I have studied printmaking at the London College of Printing and have exhibited at various London based galleries.  I produce hand made greetings cards, some of which are based on my prints which I like to enhance using gold or silver leaf.
