Christine Sloman_Keepsake_artist book in the form of a block puzzle

Christine’s artist books, prints and collages are based upon our relationship to memory, place and the passage of time.

Primarily working in monotype, etching and lithography she sees making artist books as an extension of her printmaking practice. She uses the book form to tell a story, to illustrate a moment in time, or simply to develop a theme or an aesthetic.

Christine studied paper conservation and book binding at the London College of Printing (UAL), and then worked in the conservation studios of the British Library for 10 years. She now has her own private conservation practice. In tandem with this she has developed her art work after discovering the joys of printmaking in her years at college. Having returned to Scotland after some years spent abroad, she joined Edinburgh Printmakers in 2013 and makes most of her work there, as well as working in her home studio.
