My name is Susan Yeates and I am an artist, author, tutor and creative entrepreneur. I am passionate about linocut, creativity and inspiring others to make art. I have written two books on linocutting including Amazon no. 1 bestsellers, Learning Linocut (2011) and Beginner’s Guide to Linocut (2019, Search Press.) I also have a third book about printmaking – Learn to earn from Printmaking, which discusses ways to make a little money from your art. I spend my time as an artist mainly sketching, drawing, painting and creating linocuts. You will find my portfolio, sketchbook pages, blog and available products on my website www.magenta-sky.com You will also find my regular doodles and creative endeavours on both my Facebook Page and Instagram account. Do come on over and follow me there. As well as creating my own drawings and prints I love educating and sharing my knowledge – I have a number of e-courses tutoring beginners to drawing, sketching and printmaking. These include Sketching for Fun, Build a Daily Sketching Habit and Mindful Drawing and Doodling for Beginners and my very first online short course Learning Linocut. This beginners linocut course provides a basic introduction to linocut and shows you how to make a single coloured linocut print. It is a good companion course to this greetings card course, so do look out for it. I am also a busy mama to a 3-year old budding artist, a pottery cafe owner (Fired Frog Pottery Cafe in Woking) and reading addict.
