  • About this print

    This print represents lost, rare or endangered Northumberland coastal plants. The twenty seven species selected here are only a fraction of those identified by the Natural History Society of Northumbria:

    “It is sobering to see how many rare and scarce plant species seem to be on the decline” *

    The print also reflects recent personal loss. The illustrations are inspired by a book of wildflowers given to me by Mam, whilst Dad was a keen gardener. Both parents encouraged my curiosity in nature and a love of Northumberland. ‘Collective Loss’ aims to highlight the extent of change in our natural habitats, the decline of native species and the shared emotional impact of this.

  • Endless Forms, Most Beautiful

    A new bestiary and herbarium for at risk species by artists from Northern Print.

    “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” is made possible with The National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to support visits, new printmaking and school’s programme for this project.

    Northern Print artists bring together traditional printmaking and the natural world with a series of new prints highlighting the diversity of species that are categorised as ‘at risk’.

    The ‘endless forms’ include marine life; plants; birds; insects and mammals with many familiar and much-loved species as well as less known and intriguing creatures that have captured the imagination and hearts of Northern Print’s artists.

    This exhibition of 45 new prints has been made following a series of visits to our region’s natural history collections and habitats and represents the tiniest tip of the iceberg of our natural world under threat.

    The artwork includes a range of approaches and printmaking processes – including heritage craft skills also deemed at risk including letterpress and mould-made papers
