Kathryn Desforges

I am a visual artist and printmaker based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. I use drawing, photography and found objects as a starting point for recording my responses to my local environment. From these, I create prints, artists’ books and three-dimensional works. Printmaking has been my specialist area of interest since my first taste of etching during my degree, from which I then went on to complete an artist residency at Intaglio Printmaker in London. I currently also work at West Yorkshire Print Workshop as a studio technician, course co-ordinator and freelance workshop tutor, so I’m excited about the new skills I will acquire and take with me both into my work as an artist and at WYPW.

Kathryn has just completed a post-graduate lithography internship at LPW. Read more about her internship here, or find out more our inhouse opportunities for artists here.

Photoplate lithography can pick up an amazing amount of subtle tonal detail and produces great results for both photographic and drawn images.
