Elaine Marshall was born and still lives in Greenwich. She studied at Goldsmiths College School of Art, then followed a postgraduate course at the Slade School of Fine Art. She was awarded the David Murray Landscape scholarship. Elaine also has a Hons Degree in Book Arts from the London Institute, involving creating artists’ books.
At her studio she works in several printmaking techniques. Inspiration has come from travels in France, Andalusia, Morocco and Nepal. Tuscan hills and Nepalese rice terraces are among the landscape patterns that appear in her prints. Observing foxes in her garden has inspired a series of linocuts and etchings depicting urban foxes through the seasons.
Elaine participates in the annual Greenwich Open Studios, part of the Greenwich and
Docklands Festival in June. She is a founder- member and gallery manager of the Greenwich
Printmakers, an established co-operative of artist printmakers, who run a gallery in the covered market in the heart of historic Greenwich. She also takes part in their group exhibitions in the UK and abroad.
