Northern Print

British artist Lucy May Schofield (b. 1979) makes mokuhanga prints using traditional and contemporary techniques. She works in collaboration with expansive landscapes and dark skies, marking seasonal shifts with paper, ink and wood to connect and convene with nature.

After studying at the London College of Printing, Lucy spent several years living in Japan, and despite now being based in rural Northumberland, she continues to study wood-block printing with Japanese master craftspeople using traditional and contemporary mokuhanga techniques.

She was recently elected as an Associate member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. Her work has been presented at The Kentler International Drawing Space in New York, Woolwich Contemporary and The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

Her work is held in public and private collections including Tate Britain, The Ashmolean Museum and Yale Centre for British Art.

In 2021 she was awarded a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust award to develop her practice of printmaking. Lucy was awarded the Flourish Award for excellence in printmaking in 2020.
