Artist book by Christine Sloman

Christine Sloman | Bio
Christine studied paper conservation and book binding at the London College of Printing (UAL), and then worked in the conservation studios of the British Library for 10 years. However, she has always made art alongside her conservation and book binding work, and developed a love of printmaking in her years at the LCP. She has been a member of Edinburgh Printmakers since 2013, where she has been developing her printmaking practice.

Making artist’s books has been an extension of the printmaking and book binding and she has greatly enjoyed finding ways of combining the two. It has broadened and brought new impetus to her art work.

Most of Christine’s practice revolves around themes of loss and ephemerality and the distortions of memory. She takes inspiration from the short-lived, the delicate, that which we are on the point of losing. Much of her recent work has been inspired by old, found photographs.
