Sea Tern was set up by Michelle Wood, an artist based in Whitley Bay on the North East coast of England. Her work is inspired by the coast, natural forms & colour.


Formerly an economic geographer, Michelle has a degree in Fine Art & Visual Culture. In her prints & artists' multiples, she combines her fascination with place with her love of printmaking

After qualifying & working as a secondary art teacher, Michelle wanted to help people experience, learn & be inspired by printmaking.
