About the Tutor

Charles Shearer is creates collagraphs that are informed through drawing. His subject matter often focuses on the landscape and the things that appear within this, such as romantic ruins, a manor house or folly, a wild dog or pig. He studied at Gray's School of Art, Aberdeen in 1975 and at the Royal College of Art, London, specialising in illustration.

Charles has been teaching printmaking at colleges and at workshops for many years. He is an artist printmaker who paints and draws in the landscape. Everything begins with drawing and it is in the studio that ideas are developed and themes are translated through print, primarily by the collagraph processes. Charles lives in London but travels extensively to teach and to seek subject matter.
