Kyla Cresswell grew up in the south of New Zealand and studied printmaking at the Otago School of Art. Time living and working overseas, saw her influenced by the aesthetics of Japan and inspired by the minimal, wintery landscape of Europe and Canada.
Kyla’s delicate work explores the physical impact of the elements on the environment as well as the consequences of human occupation of the land. Working mainly in mezzotint and drypoint, she strives to find a sense of stillness and a quiet celebration of nature. Her work is firmly grounded in a sense of place.
The frame shown is made in a virtual setting to give an example as close as possible to the framing available.
