Susan Allix studied Fine Art and Printmaking at Guildford, the Royal College of Art and in Italy as a Prix de Rome scholar. She is a printmaker, typographer and binder.
Susan believes that hand held prints reveal their freshness. Always interested in words, she uses their shapes and meanings as typographic designs and the sculptural qualities of bookbinding allow her to work with a wide range of materials.
Susan has a personal studio equipped for etching, relief printing, letterpress and binding where she usually works alone. She makes every part of the book herself, creating a fully integrated piece of art. All works contain a text chosen or written by herself, together with a series of images, contained in a binding inspired from its contents.
Her works are held in the collections of The British Library, Yale University, National Gallery of Art Washington DC, The Claremont Colleges in California, the Rochester Institute of Technology, the University of Alberta, as well as other fine public and private collections.
