Welcome to my website. My name is Alexandra Buckle. I'm an artist previously based near Buckingham and now living in Bicester, Oxfordshire. I'm inspired by countryside walks and excited by light, shadow and colour. I enjoy capturing my favourite scenery as hand printed ‘reduction’ linocuts. A reduction linocut is a relief print formed with layers of colour that are cut and printed from the same block of lino.
In 2011 and 2012 I had work selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. In 2014 and 2015 I had two prints exhibited in the Society of Women Artists exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London.
I teach private lino printing classes and workshops at my home studio in Bicester.

Happy New Year!Sending my best wishes to you and wishing you a happy new year.
New Year, New GoalI have decided to set myself the crazy goal of creating 50 prints in 2017 ! I shall be posting each one on my facebook page, so follow me to keep up! You can click the facebook like button above and to the right. I will also put them in Instagram (I'm alexandra.bucke).
I was really happy with the prints I completed last year but a little disappointed I didn't find time to create more. I am determined that this year will be different!
