Welcome to the Curious Printmaker website

Emily Harvey

I am a Yorkshire based printmaker; most of my prints are collagraphs, this technique incorporates a lot of different materials and encourages an inventive approach with plenty of improvisation which I love.

Many of my prints are created during artist residencies – I enjoy the challenge of creating new work inspired by a particular setting.

Please have a look at the gallery for some examples of my work.
