Victoria Linehan

Victoria Linehan is a silk screen printer and etcher. She trained at ‘Margaret Street’, UCE Birmingham and currently teaches at Birmingham Printmakers in the artist’s quarter of Birmingham.

Victoria uses an etching technique which does not use acids or poisonous chemicals. Her etchings are a mixture of photographic images and hand painted marks.   Both color and mark-making interest Victoria and she takes inspiration from surfaces of walls, architecture and graffiti.

Victoria lived in Italy for many years as a child and taught English as an adult in Bolzani, North-East Italy.  This latest series of etchings by Victoria reflects the fact that Venice has a very special place in her heart and Victoria says: "The TV Series "Francesco da Mosto - Venice” is a must"!
