Angie Lewin studied BA(Hons) Fine Art Printmaking at Central St Martins College of Art and Design between 1983 and 1986, followed by a year's part-time postgraduate printmaking at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts.

After working in London as an illustrator Angie studied horticulture and then a move to Norfolk prompted a return to printmaking.

Inspired by both the clifftops and saltmarshes of the North Norfolk coast and the Scottish Highlands, Angie depicts these contrasting environments and their native flora through wood engravings, linocuts, silkscreen prints, lithograph and collage. These landscapes are often glimpsed through intricately detailed platforms.

Attracted to the relationships between plant communities on an intimate level, even the fine lines of insect eggs on a flower bud are observed in her work. Still lives often incorporate seedpods, grasses, flints and dried seaweed collected on walking and sketching trips. A Wedgwood cup designed by Ravilious, may contain feathers and seedheads.

Angie now mainly lives and works in Scotland. As well as designing fabrics and stationery for St Jude's, which she runs with her husband Simon, she has completed commissions for Penguin, Faber, Conran Octopus, Merrell and Picador and has also designed fabrics for Liberty. Her prints and paintings are exhibited across the UK and is represented by a number of galleries.
