Lee Kellgren was born in Manchester. After gaining an MA in computer graphics in London, Lee studied Fine Art at Bristol School of Art. She spent ten years printmaking at Spike Print Studio in Bristol. Her etchings are created from copper plate, and are hand inked and hand printed in limited editions. A contrasting technique uses ultraviolet light biting into Toyobo plates, to create photogravure etchings. Images are created from photographs, manipulated acetate positives, x-ray film or images drawn on translucent film. This produces etching prints with a delicate, other-worldly quality.
Lee Kellgren moved to Penryn in Cornwall in 2014. She has set up a studio in a converted chapel, and joined John Howard Print Studios at Jubilee Wharf.
