Valerie Sims


Artist-printmaker, wildlife gardener, environmentalist.

  • 3, St Ethelwolds Close, Ely, CB6 3AX
  • Based in the Fens, I spend a lot of time outdoors looking at insects, birds and plants during the changing seasons, and observing the interconnectedness of all things in the natural world – the ecosystem.

    I have a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art Printmaking from the Cambridge School of Art and taught for 8 years at the Curwen Print Study Centre. I spent 7 years making limited edition b&w woodcuts (see my website) but am now making small woodcuts with hand colouring.

    I hand carve my own designs into wood and print using my etching press onto Fabriano Rosaspina 285gsm paper.
