Theresa Easton is an Artist based in the heart of the cultural quarter of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the North East of England. At the core of her practice is printmaking and the preoccupation with pushing the boundaries of printmaking processes using glass, brick, ceramics and paper in architectural installation and exhibitions. She regularly delivers workshops in printmaking and bookbinding from her studio at 36 Lime Street, Ouseburn Valley.

Easton is particularly interested in exploiting the qualities printmaking holds, exploring aspects such as the etched surface of metal, the transparent and luminous qualities of printed glass or the repeated motif.

Easton has been commissioned to create public art pieces such as the Metro Centre’s 2009 hand printed glass cubes, located in the Yellow Quadrant, as well as being involved in international exhibitions such as the 5th International Artist’s Book Triennial in Vilnius 2009.  Easton’s practice largely centers on museum, heritage and social history interpretation.  For a number of years, Easton has worked closely with Newcastle’s Literary & Philosophical Society, initiating projects connected with identity, artist’s books as well as completing a yearlong residency in the library.
