Unit 2 is Anja's printmaking studio, which also houses a gallery space, to display her etchings that are created and hand-printed on site. Established as a professional artist in 2002, and awarded Printmaker of the Year at Printfest 2010, she specialises in hand-drawn etching on copper. Recent work depicts urban spaces that are infiltrated by different qualities of light. Her compositions aim to combine different moods of light, with contrasting space and surface qualities. She enjoys working with wax resist on aquatint, using techniques that build on the highlights of the image, instead of building up the composition with dark line and shading. Visitor are weclome to come and see the artist at work, and find out about the printmaking techniques she uses. She sells original etchings, cards and gift vouchers.
