Estella is an artist based in Crewe, although most of her source material comes from an enduring love of the coast of North West Wales. She originally trained as a painter, making large scale canvas work, graduating from Lancaster Polytechnic in 1975. Estella returned to fine art in the 1990’s, after a long gap, gaining a Masters Degree in Fine Art in 2003. She worked in community education for many years and continues to teach privately from time to time, running workshops in printmaking and book art.
‘My current work is in various original printmaking techniques, and increasingly in making artists books. Inspiration comes from favourite coastal areas, where the visual impressions of colour, texture and shape from eroded natural forms, man-made beach debris and the remnants of vanishing industries linger in the mind, to emerge as abstract imagery on paper.’
