Shaylah Marsh

Printmaking, Booth 335

Shaylah Marsh is an emerging Canadian artist based in Ottawa, Ontario. She received her BFA from York University and holds a BEd from Nipissing University. She works in many different types of printmaking with a passion for linocut printing. The act of carving away to reveal each layer of colour creates a connection between artist and print like no other form of printmaking. Linocut is a true hands on experience ending with the joy of pulling the print off the block to reveal the image. Her most recent print series are Canadian landscape reduction linocuts meant to evoke nostalgia and a sense of place. Each location is chosen based on personal experiences with the place or based on the experiences of others spoken to her.
