Gladys Stoesz-Hammond is a Linocut printmaker. She was born in Winnipeg where she trained and worked as a graphic designer for many years.
Her artwork is inspired by the beauty of her neighbourhood. Each design is carved into linoleum in reverse, it is then inked and a sheet of paper is placed over it. After burnishing, the paper is carefully lifted to reveal the unique print.

Primarily functional in nature, Colleen’s forms are organically shaped and finished with subtle impressions. She prefers the natural earth tones of shino glazed that show marks of the journey of the pot through the fire. Through function, form and glaze, her work evokes a feeling of comfort - a desire to pick up, hold and use the chosen piece.
