Bruce Rushin – Broadland
Bruce is an artist and designer living in the village of Upton in Norfolk. He creates Linocuts and paintings, all inspired by the natural world.
“I produce prints using lino, and paintings in acrylics and mixed media. I also produce one-off artist’s books.
My inspiration comes from wild birds, who frequent our garden and the marshes which lead down to the River Bure. I am interested in attempting to capture the individuality of each bird. I am also interested in how nature is depicted in the art of other cultures, particularly in India and the Middle East.
I studied fine art at Ravensbourne College of Art and Design and then taught for many years. In 1996, I won a competition to design a new £2.00 coin which was in production for 19 years. In 2011, I also designed the Sailing 50 pence coin for the 2012 London Olympics.”
