Those who love pattern will love the work of French artist Anne Marie Lepretre. Through prints and paint, she explores abstract colours, textures and lines, often inspired by maps, signs & symbols, she has a self-confessed obsession with circles. Lepretre was encouraged in her love of art by family members who were professional artists and designers. She studied textile design in France followed by printmaking at the Slade School of Art. She uses zinc metal plates and a mix of traditional printing techniques. She sometimes uses watercolours and collage, pencil or inks to create layers of colours or textures. She is a longstanding member of the Oxford Printmakers and exhibits in France and the UK.
