Printmaker Jemma Gunning recently completed a Masters at the University of West England, exhibited at the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers Masters: Etching, and is a founder of the Bristol Print Collective, which holds workshops for communities with little access to art.
The QEST Johnnie Walker Scholarship will fund Jemma’s Printmaking Fellowship at The City & Guilds of London Art School with master Jason Hicklin. She will learn the depths of intaglio printmaking, which supports her vision of the urban landscapes she depicts.
“With few institutions teaching printmaking, studying with a master is invaluable. It maintains the traditions of this 600-year-old craft used by Goya and Rembrandt and will prepare me to run my own studio and teach in higher education.”
