Ann Lewis (President RCA)

Elected to RCA 1991

Born in St. Asaph, Flintshire, after graduating in Graphic Design at Exeter in 1988, Ann returned to Wales, initially working as a freelance designer and illustrator.

A gradual evolution from designer to fine artist began in 1993 when Ann was elected a member of the Royal Cambrian Academy. In April 2014, Ann was elected Vice-President of the Academy.

Since 2009, Ann has worked full time as a printmaker, specialising in the reduction method of linocutting. She produces limited editions of hand-printed linocuts in her studio above the Conwy Valley in North Wales.

Ann’s work is inspired largely by the Welsh landscape, its mountains, rivers, waterfalls and coastline.

Ann has work in the National Library of Wales’ collection, the Government‘s Art Collection and The Grosvenor Museum, Chester’s Print Collection.
