Artists are yet to be selected for the 2018 show - in the meantime here is a little information about the Core Team 

Steve Ashman

Steve joined the 2018 COPB team in February 2017. 

Steve Ashman


He retired from the corporate telecoms industry in 2016 after 44 years of service, and although not a printmaker himself, he brings a wealth of experience in managing large projects. Steve is responsible for coordinating the overall range of activities for the 2018 COPB event, and has specific responsibility for organising the venue and the logistics for the 2018 exhibition.

Anna Pye

Anna came to print making in 2011 following her retirement from teaching.

She found it wonderful to have time to be creative again, which has been a continuing passion throughout her life in various ways. 

Anna enjoys lino cutting, screen printing and mono printing and is particularly keen on screen printing textiles and sharing her knowledge by teaching workshops.

Work by Anna Pye
Anna exhibited with COPB in 2014 and 2016 and joined the team to organise the 2018 exhibition earlier this year. She will bring her strong organisational skills and sense of humour to the team.

Louise Stebbing

Louise joined the Team earlier this year. She was delighted to selected to exhibit with COPB in 2014 and 2016.

Bringing it Home


Louise has been mesmerised by Printmaking since her Foundation Course in Cambridge in 1979/80, going on to complete a Fine Art Degree at Sheffield and Postgraduate in Printmaking at Camberwell. 

At the moment she works mainly with lino and etching.

Sue Jones

Sue is a Co Founder Organiser of the Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale.  She worked as Lead Tutor and Studio Manager at the Curwen Print Study Centre for 17 years, devising  and teaching many of the  workshops and the Certificate in Printmaking Skills.  

Broken Threads V

Currently Sue runs printmaking workshops at the ACE Foundation, Gainsborough House, and at her own studio Stoneman Press.  Sue is an  Artist Facilitator with Kettlesyard.  

Sue creates multilayered monotypes constructed of varying techniques and exhibits locally and in London.  Her  experience in the printmaking field supports the team and planning of the Biennale, liaising with Artists to deliver printmaking talks, demonstrations, selection and workshops to develop and promote  hand pulled original print.

Tracey Ashman

Tracey Ashman has been printmaking for over a decade. After completing the CSPC printmaking certificate she decided to become an artist full time. 

Anomaly IIITracey exhibited with the Cambridge Original Printmakers in their inaugural exhibition in 2014. She then joined the Core Team for the Biennale exhibition in 2016 and is continuing as a team member in the planning for the 2018 Biennale. 

Having previously served as secretary for the Cambridge Drawing Society, Tracey has experience of organising large exhibitions and always enjoys the camaraderie of the occasion with fellow printmakers.

Tracey’s prints explore past traumatic health issues and the ways in which ‘stitch’, displayed in various ways, can be viewed as a metaphor for both physical and psychological healing and mending. The process of exploration and the making of the series of prints are two-fold; the cathartic property of art itself as a tool for healing.

Ric Pimentel

 Ric joined the COPB2018 team as treasurer in 2017.

A Mathematics teacher by profession, he took a five year break in teaching to study for BA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, London.

Cultural Consequences II
Specialising predominantly in screen printing and photography, Ric incorporates images from his photographic work to produce pieces that address both cultural and political issues
