Martin Truefitt-Baker is a fine art printmaker and painter living in the Brecon Beacons national park, South Wales, UK.
He makes reduction linocuts, usually printing from just a single piece of lino. This is progressively cut away and overprinted onto the paper several times, in a succession of tones, to build up the final image.
Martin’s prints are of the animals he has seen on his walks through the local landscape around his home, equipped with a sketchbook and camera. He always tries to catch some of the magic in the way the animal moves and lives within its environment. The beautiful Usk valley, rough mountainsides, twisted trees, wild flowers and busy insects fill the backgrounds of his prints.
