janet dickson  printmaker


I studied BA(Hons) Graphic Design at Newcastle Polytechnic, now the University of Northumbria, graduating in 1984, after which I worked in graphic design practice before returning to Northumbria as a Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design. My return to printmaking (first so enjoyed as a student when I was never happier than when in the print room) was a gradual but consistent process until my move to the part of rural Northumberland where I now have my studio. After fifteen years teaching I now make prints and offer occasional workshops in my riverside studio.

My design background undoubtedly influences my work and my interest in print applied to other areas of design bubbles away under the surface - I occasionally get involved in a design or illustration project if the opportunity arises. I have included more about this in design projects.
