    Print Place Interdisciplinary Residency August 2021

    Leah Crews is a London based artist printmaker working with linocut and Japanese woodblock printmaking.

    Drawing from an extensive research period in Japan over the last few years, including two artist residencies, Leah creates prints featuring objects and elements of Japanese culture and aesthetic. Combining components of traditional Japanese multi-block printmaking with Western relief print techniques and materials she seeks to create a bridge between the two, exploring the crossover between two distinct forms of printmaking.

    Leah studied fine art at Bath Spa University and was subsequently a member of the Bath Artist Printmakers before leaving for Japan in 2016.
