About

Artist's Statement:

 

I’m a Midlands based artist and arts facilitator, with a Masters in Fine Art. Specialising in printmaking, My art is both research and process driven: incorporating text, narrative, and imagery, interwoven in a multidisciplinary visual language. I use a variety of methods such as monoprint, silkscreen, collagraph and etching.

 

My work is inspired by history, identity and disability. At times the work is autobiographical, and often includes the lived experiences of other disabled people. This has become an ongoing collaboration between narrative and my artistry. Creating disability awareness is an important part of my practice, which often manifests in tactile pieces designed to be handled. As an arts facilitator, I am well-versed in making my workshops and participatory events accessible.

 

I exhibit regularly in the UK. Funding from organisations including Arts Council England have enabled me to work internationally as artist in residence in Canada, leading to further residencies, exhibitions and funding. 

If you would like to know more about me and my art work please feel free to contact me.

Fae Kilburn,
