Tracey Hayward BA

Barton under Needwood, Staffordshire

Tracey is predominantly a printmaker, her distinct, crisp style is mostly achieved by subtracting from a primary etched image and then often finishing with gold leaf. Her practice also includes mezzotint engraving; prints  characterised by rich velvety tones which reveal themselves through burnishing a ‘rocked’ plate.

She explores ways of translating character and politics into a simple visual language of colour, tone and balance in order to stimulate the creation of story.
