Kate Heiss

Prints by Kate Heiss

Our featured artist Kate Heiss is a contemporary printmaker inspired by her love of nature, especially the flowers and  birds of the landscapes of Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.  Her small limited edition prints are dynamic, bold and illustrative in vibrant fresh colours.

Kate studied at the Royal College of Art graduating with an MA in Textile Design in 1997. She then worked as a textile designer across a wide range of fashion brands before setting up her own printmaking studio in 2011.

She works in a variety of printmaking techniques including linocut, screenprint and collage. Often her works combine more than one technique making her collection of handmade prints truly unique. All of her work is handmade in her studios in Ashwell, Hertfordshire and Thornham, Norfolk.

Kate has been showing her work with us for two years now and we are delighted to have a fabulous selection of her work available to buy online and in the gallery.  For pieces that are available online please go to Kate Heiss Prints

Christmas at West Barn 2018

We are delighted to  welcome new artist Carole Ann Grace to our gallery with her vibrant abstracted Norfolk landscape paintings.  Her work is a response to landscape, memory, a sense of place.  Emotion is expressed in colour and gestural mark-making.  Working largely with acrylic on canvas her work is bold, colourful and exciting.

The show opened on 16th November and continues until the end of January 2019.  We will be open as usual over the festive period, only closing for 25th, 26th December and 1st, 2nd January.

We also have new work from a number of gallery regulars including linocuts from Kate Heiss, sculpture by Carol Pask, ceramics by Rob Wheeler and new Limited Edition Prints of work by Joe Ramm and Nicky Litchfield. In our well-stocked gallery shop you will find a fabulous range of cards, Christmas cards, advent calendars, jewellery, textiles, art books and gifts.
