Born in Llanbedrog, on the Llŷn Peninsula, and raised as a fluent trilingual, Lea Sautin graduated from the Painting and Printmaking department of the Glasgow School of Art in June 2015. Her artistic practice explores the themes of language, translation, and perpetual transformation within the storytelling tradition of Wales. She is interested in distortions and transformations when moving from one media or language to another. To create her prints, she interprets events of the tales through a chain of processes (woodcut, screen print, sculpture, photography, etching, and embossing). Each stage within the process acts as a translation of the stage which preceded it, mirroring the transformation of the original tales through their various interpretations. Her focus is on the ever-changing craft of the storyteller whatever the medium.
