Dave Elsom

Lino Print
This artist is open to commissions.
Dave is a printmaker who lives in Chesterfield, having moved there from Sheffield at the start of 2020. In his teens he attended art college in his native Portsmouth but after a couple of decades of living in Sheffield and not doing much with his art, he attended a drawing and painting night school class at Hillsborough college. This was followed by a printmaking course at the same place, where he quickly fell in love with making lino prints and he ended up doing the same course three times. Dave's work is sold in shops, cafes and studios in the Sheffield and Chesterfield area. He sells handmade cards, prints and also has his designs printed onto wood and slate. He also sells his items through Etsy and teaches lino printing. He's recognised for his imagery of running, cats, tattoos and mermaids in particular, however he's best known for his "Do Not Lick Pigeons" prints and beer mats, which appear in pubs and cafes from time to time. There's a definite abstract element to his work (and his brain).
