Theresa Easton is an Artist based in the North East of England, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Easton studied Fine Art, specialising in Printmaking at the University of East London and completed an MA in Glass at Sunderland University  in 2007.

Heritage interpretation plays an important part in Theresa Easton’s practice. Easton is interested in exploring cultural and historical episodes using contemporary printmaking processes and artist’s books.  Easton is drawn to working with alternative materials to paper and traditional bookbinding styles thereby  pushing the boundaries of printmaking.

Using printing techniques with glass and metal, Easton  is able to explore the inherent qualities of the materials, on occasions working within the Public Realm, working to commission and producing studio work for gallery exhibitions.

Easton  has a fluid relationship with her work and  the development of participatory projects. Her work is embededd with a natural ability to identify community participation and collaborative projects which generate curiosity and empowerment.  Her work embodies a cross fertilisation of ideas, inspired by books, conversations and social history.

The Sunderland Book Project is an on-going project organised by Easton, which encourages participants to make a book in response to the city of Sunderland. The project has a national and international touring programme.

Easton’s interest in Artist’s Books began with an international project in 2007 with The Penny Histories and has since expanded to include organising The Gallery North Artist’s Book Fair in 2010, and, more recently, having bookwork selected to become part of the London Tate’s Library collection of artist’s books in 2012. Recent  bookwork & print projects include taking part in Pyramid Atlantic Book Arts Fair & Conference November 2012 and the Pushing Print Festival in Margate October 2012.

  1. Hello Theresa (if I may!)

    I love your website – and I thought it would be good to connect,

    I Love the Idea of the Thrift Festival and I thought your readers may be interested in some tips from my book The Thrifty London Guide, There is a lot of information in the book for Art lovers.

    I originally compiled the “The Thrifty London Guide” so I could send it to London hospitals, so families of youngsters who are in hospital would be able to find inexpensive places to visit in London on the days when there youngsters were not receiving treatment – and were able to go out. I soon realised that the information enclosed would be helpful to all Londoner’s and visitors to London in these difficult economic times.

    Would love to hear your thoughts,

    Best Wishes
    Lynn Culver

    • Hello Lynn
      thanks for you comment, your book sounds like a brilliant idea! I have to say i was completely taken aback by the amount of Thrifty tips received from the public visiting the Festival of Thrift, its a sign of the times however as the austerity measures bite and the greed from a select few continues to grow. I used to live in London years ago and can appreciate the need to access affordable places to visit, but like you say its even more pertinent now, and a ll lot of visitors to the city would benefit. Send me some further details and i will circulate as needed.
      Kind Regards
      Theresa
