Mary CROCKETT

The daughter of the late Cornish-based painter John Crockett, Mary Crockett studied painting at Winchester School of Art from 1972 to 1975. She moved to Penzance from London in 1991 and is one of the most experienced printmakers working in Cornwall today. She has organised print workshops in public art venues, and has taught in British and Cornwall's educational facilities since the 1980s. She is a tutor in printmaking at Newlyn School of Art.

From 1998 to 2006 she worked at Stoneman Graphics with the late Hugh STONEMAN. She has engaged with most of the major artists of the area who practise printmaking. Much of her time is spent in working on editions for other artists, though her own work is both as a painter and printmaker (monoprinting, etching and lino cuts).
