Gloria Holden

BA hons (Art and Design)

MA (Education)

 

Originally from Rochdale, and now living in the riverside town of Gravesend in Kent.

 

I have taught Art and Design in Kent  schools for over 30 years and have also led various adult education workshops.  

I studied Textile Design at Loughborough College of Art and Design, and was always fascinated by the patterns and textures found in natural forms and layered 

landscapes. Land forms, fossils, insects and seedpods are frequent subjects for my work.

I enjoy exploring these qualities through intaglio printmaking methods, collagraphs and through making collages, built up in layers from fragments of my own prints. 

I am a member of the Printmakers Council and I regularly participate in South East Open Studios.
