Hi, I’m Carrie, Celtic knot artist and printmaker.

I work from my studio in Derwentside, County Durham. I create lino prints of local landscapes, architecture and nature and original hand drawn Celtic knotwork. I also love to teach these skills (and more!) to others – find out more at www.craftsforwellbeing.co.uk

I have also created three colouring books for all of you adult colouring enthusiasts out there!

Personal

Originally from the Lancastrian coast, I have moved many times, living in Cumbria, the Midlands, Greater Manchester, South Yorkshire, north east Germany and the Peak District, and finally settled in County Durham 24 years ago! I trained as a graphic designer at a publishing firm in Leicester in the early 1990s (everything was done on a Compugraphic typesetter machine then, with scalpels and plenty of spray adhesive!), and I also completed a BA (Hons) degree in Germanic Studies in the mid-1990s, which involved a wonderful year living in north eastern Germany, on the Baltic coast. I live with my wonderful partner, Tony, who is also a Celtic knot artist, and we spend our spare time renovating our house and working in our allotment – and enjoying the produce from it, of course!
