Flora McLachlan

Flora is based in West Wales and is  a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (RE). 

Flora's  work grows out of the experience of observing the landscape and the process of translating this experience into print. She is inspired by the fairy tales that she grew up reading, and by the motif of the quest in the medieval romance poetry she read during her English degree.


For Flora etching is a slow and reflective process. The image moves through many stages of biting in the mordant, as she adds layers of line, texture, shadow and meaning, watching the image slowly become itself. ​
