Amber Leah Littleford
Amber is a printmaker and illustrator designing under the name of ‘The Gardener’s Daughter’.
She is inspired by people and the natural world around her, enjoying the great outdoors, walking and sketching. ‘The Gardener’s Daughter’ grew up in a very active and artistic family, spending many hours in wellies exploring the countryside from a very young age. Her love of illustration and photography drives her practice and she enjoys the freedom it gives her to explore the world that surrounds her.
‘The Gardener’s Daughter’ uses a mixture of processes within her practice, yet traditional linoleum printing remains her favourite method. She collates her sketches onto linoleum sheets and creates playful, yet charming narrative arrangements. She hopes that her artwork evokes a smile and a little wonder to her audience.
Her chosen scarf designs are derived from original lino cuts from her current collection, ‘A Gardener’s Delight’.
