Hi! I'm Beth Lewis, I am a printmaking artist and stamp maker based in North Cornwall where I live with my husband, 6 year old daughter and 6 month old son, brood of chickens, 2 huge and very silly ducks, 6 year old tortoise Roger and baby tortoise Elliot!
I am inspired by nature, wildflowers and the trees in our 28 acre woodland which I manage with my Husband. I grew up on an organic farm not far from where we live now but I always had my nose in a sketch book and never looked up long enough to appreciate fully the wonderful nature around me! After nearly 15 years in cities for my creative studies, I took my now husband on a camping trip to my parents woodland, and we fell in love! After a few years of camping trips and dreaming we asked if we could start helping, and eventually we took over the management and run the woods as a traditional working woodland and event space you can find out more at www.underpinewoods.co.uk
And so started my new learning journey... my nose is still in a sketch book but I took it as an opportunity to spend time being creative and learn what we need to manage the woodland ourselves!
Im currently working on a new collection of fine art prints, printmaking products and stationary and illustration commissions, I dream of hosting an exhibition of my work sometime in the near future!
