Deb Wing is a Linocut print artist living on the west coast of Scotland. She creates very small, varied editions that make every print unique and strives to blur the boundaries between printing and painting. She is a self-taught artist and a member of the Glasgow Society of Women Artists.
She has exhibited at the Great Print Exhibition in England, galleries across Scotland and across the UK. Collectors across Europe, North America and beyond have purchased her work. She also teaches other print artists her unique ways of working.
A particular feature of Deb's work is that she only works with inks in the three primary colours, black and white. This means that she has a real focus on creating the rich palettes of Scottish landscapes that she loves. Her prints reflect the changing seasons, but also the peace and drama of our natural landscape
The beautiful landscapes inspire much of her work. She specialises in original Linocut printing and has exhibited work locally in Scotland and in other galleries across England.
Each lino print is produced individually. Variations in inking, particularly in hand-printing, will mean the every print is an original - many printers aim for consistency in their work.
Many people are confused because they think of 'original paintings' where any 'prints' are exact copies. This makes people think an 'original print' is a contradiction in terms!
An original print in Linocut printing (or woodcuts, collagraphs or etching) is made individually and is unique in its production.
Where an edition is 'limited', the original Linocut will only be used to make a specified number of prints.
