Stef Mitchell

 I work as full time artist, curator and educator.
My practice grows from an ongoing relationship with the 
landscape, specifically travelling through it. I record walks, and 
document field set aside, gardens and the effects of weather 
patterns on plant growth through printmaking working directly 
with plants.The ink and paper having equal say in the process.
The picking up of plants and laying them out on an inked up 
plate, rolling squashing and smelling has a slow rhythm that 
feeds into a connective thread from the space of the external 
landscape to the inside space of the studio.
I also set up and curate the Touring Caravan Gallery and 
deliver workshops from my studio and within the community.
I have exhibited widely within Yorkshire and nationally and 
have had work selected for the RWA Exhibition at Bankside 
and the 14th Arts Festival in Goedereede, Netherlands.
 I would welcome the opportunity to be involved in Hoard and 
see that it could expand and bring new life to my practice.
Much of what I do is serial work that records and documents in 
some way - I am prolific in output and create as well as print 
and paintings mini libraries of sketch books recording all the 
plants that cross my path on my travels. I also make artists 
books and these are becoming more sequential for example 
recording monthly pickings from various of places.
