#ContemporaryArtMonday - This week's artist's voice is Angela Brookes, an artist working from her small studio at home in Greenwich using her trusty Bewick press.

“Holidays in Scotland and the Lake District have fed my love of mountains. I enjoy depicting the ever-changing effects of light and colour and different times of the day, as the seasons roll through the year. I often visit Norfolk, where I am attracted to the vast open spaces and huge skies.”

You can see Brookes' works on display, including the pictures right, in our latest Watts Contemporary Gallery exhibition, In Print: British Landscapes.

In Print: British Landscapes brings together work by 13 contemporary print makers to celebrate the diversity of contemporary practice in this medium and is on until 7 January.

From the coasts of Norfolk, Northumberland, Sussex and Wales through to the countryside of Yorkshire, Shropshire, Dorset and Devon – as well as local Surrey scenes of Boxhill and Oxshott Heath – this exhibition demonstrates how the landscape is an endless source of fascination for artists. Using wood engraving, linocut, collage, etching, screenprinting and solar plate etching, the exhibition shows the wide range of techniques employed by today's artists to depict landscape in print.

Featured artists are Kit Boyd, Stuart Brocklehurst, Angela Brookes, Ann Burnham, Louise Davies, Mary Gillett, Anne Gournay, Gloria Holden, Jennifer Jokhoo, Andy Lovell, Howard Phipps, Judith Robertson and Richard Shimell. The exhibition is a collaboration with Gwen Hughes Fine Art.
