Bicester artist Alexandra Buckle has found international sales success for her linocuts inspired by the local countryside.

Alexandra said: “I learnt how to do the linocuts about the same time as we got our dog, Dora, and began walking in the countryside more.

“Our local woodlands are our favourite place to go.

“I find myself taking a lot of photographs, documenting the changes of light, weather and season.

“I create linocuts from my favourites, doing my best to capture the colours and lighting of the scene accurately.”

Alexandra has now sold 180 of her linocuts to countries including Australia, America and Singapore via the Artfinder online art platform.

She will be opening her studio to the public as part of Oxfordshire Artweeks from May 21 to 30, and is involved in four exhibitions as part of Bucks Open Studios from June 11 to 26.
