My latest series of monotype and collagraph prints are inspired by granite and water within the landscape of Dartmoor. 


The peaty colours in the water and the textures of the granite rocks are reflected in the subtleties of this series of three monotype prints.

Framed £215.

I am inspired greatly by natural landscapes, particularly ones that evoke an atmospheric sense of quiet, solitude and peace.

Light plays a strong part in creating these scenes, as does my love of trees, particularly from a winter landscape.


For monotypes, I work the ink onto the surface of the printing plate, building up individual layers, then adding a drawn element as the final layer. They are all original one-off prints. Collagraphs are made by selecting various tectures that I glue onto the printing plate, creating natural forms. The ink is carefully blended and worked into the surface of the plate, then printed. Multiple prints are able to be made as a varied edition.


Much of my work is printed onto beautiful lightweight Japanese papers.

I'm delighted that my ink drawing of the Lucombe Oak is the cover for Katharine Tower's latest book of poetry, titled 'Oak' published in November 2021.


During the first lockdown in 2020, I re-discovered local woods and was introduced to the magnificent 500+ year old Lucombe Oak. The value of walks in nature was highlighted and after frequent visits I began an ongoing series of drawings based on the beautiful trees in Widey Woods and Ham Woods Nature Reserve.


It's been wonderful to find a kindrid spirit in Katharine and our mutal love of trees combines her beautiful poetry and my drawing perfectly!

Clare Rogers BA (Hons)


Drawing has always been an innate part of me. As a child, I was always observing and making marks, conjuring up images from my imagination, and later, reproducing a likeness of anything that caught my eye, especially natural objects.


Still-life and landscape drawing has developed into a lifelong passion, running alongside a recurrent compulsion for collecting botanical ephemera. 


Originally training and working as a graphic designer but, after gaining a BA Hons in Fine Art in 2011,  my focus turned to developing my art practice to include printmaking, drawing and handmade artist books.


Landscapes are a constant. The flow of open spaces, particularly moorland, lead the eye through form, texture and light. The scenery, punctuated by rocky tors, filigree trees, bendy hawthorns and lone conifers, offer contrasts between subtle, gentle mists and brooding, deep, atmospheric conditions.


The monotype process is a flexible one. Adding and removing ink and manipulating textures on the plate offers a painterly response and building up individual layers on each unique print generates unplanned outcomes. Recent use of Japanese Awagami papers has added an ethereal quality to some prints, with a greater focus on light and transparency.


A viewer’s sense of their own space within the landscape is important. Wandering through these vistas, the viewer can be drawn into ‘other places’, sensing the familiar, yet illusive nature of memory and belonging. 


In recent years, my drawing practice has featured many trees from ancient woods which have become a natural addition to my monotypes. The contrast between more botanical drawings and the fluid, sketchy features of the trees in my monotypes has been an exciting development.


Over the last ten years I have exhibited nationally and internationally with both my printmaking and handmade artist books. I frequently enjoy exhibiting with the Drawn to the Valley Artists Group in the Tamar Valley, and, in 2021 took part in the Awagami Mini Print Fair in Japan and at Ironbridge Fine Arts & Framing in 2022.

I enjoy observing objects, spaces, textures, colours and shapes. I take many photographs which I sometimes crop and occasionally manipulate.

These images often end up as inspiration for my printmaking and drawing.
