Delphine Jones is an Exeter based printmaker. She graduated in Graphic Design and Illustration at Exeter College of Art and Design and is a member of the Society of Industrial Artists and Designers. She has worked as a senior graphic designer in the education sector for over 25 years. Delphine is passionate about all aspects of printmaking and is a member of Double Elephant, a fine art printmaking studio, based in Exeter.
Delphine draws upon the natural world for inspiration, documenting the landscape through screen printing. Her limited edition prints are largely created with line and texture. By abstracting and refining her initial observations, her working process begins with a series of sketches, rubbings and photographic references taken from the Devon landscape. At her Exeter studio she then abstracts the scene redrawing the image using the textures and colours that she has referenced from the landscape. This creates a unique vibrancy and contemporary approach to her printmaking.
