Tushka Illustrates (Chrissy Mouncey)

Screen prints & prints

Tushka is Chrissy Mouncey, a North Devon-based artist, who explores transforming subconscious and uplifting glimpses of beauty into more permanent and tangible moments using the medium of print.

Layering drawings, photographs and screen print techniques, she explores ‘gentle activism’ to empower the significance of nature by making beautiful details more prominent and preserving the sensation of positivity often experienced in nature.

Using figurative elements alongside glimpses of the natural world that embody the sense of something special in the everyday, she evokes notions of nostalgia. Tushka is evolving her work to explore the visual triggers themselves, currently focusing on positive sensations from light and water. Birds are also a repeat motive in her prints as a symbol of being uplifted by the natural environment. She has begun experimenting with printing on glass as a means to create light and shadow within the artwork, alongside a sense of delicate permanence.

Screen printing enables Tushka to create a series, or collection, increasing the sense of permanence of the imagery. As an artist, she has always collected in an attempt to preserve positive memories.

After studying Fine Art and English (Plymouth University Faculty of Arts) and Graphic Design (London College of Communication), Tushka has worked as a printmaker for six years in her studio alongside printing at Double Elephant print studio (Exeter) and Spike Print Studio (Bristol).
