Award-winning printmaker Vicky is a pattern guru. As a
Senior Print Technician at Nottingham Trent University,
Vicky uses technical expertise to help students execute
fashion-forward looks.

“We have a huge print room used by students studying creative subjects like
textiles, fine art, graphic design, decorative arts and fashion design. My role is to support students with their projects, offering technical print support and training.”

Vicky’s background lies in creative industry. She completed an Art
Foundation course at college and specialised in fine art printmaking whilst
studying for her undergraduate degree.

“During my B.A. I went on an Erasmus exchange programme in Portugal
where I learnt a lot of techniques including back-to-basic printmaking
combined with photography. I won a Tesco Painting Prize when I returned
back to the UK.”

After teaching in schools, Vicky joined the School of Art and Design at
Nottingham Trent University as a Senior Print Technician.
“There are a lot of elements involved in working within the print room. You
need to have expertise in many different areas like screen-printing fabric,
machinery and industrial textile chemicals. You need to be a problem-solver
and always plan ahead.”
