Denise Wyllie


Ballard-Wyllie’s landscape prints have burst into abundant flowerings, showing luscious colour harmonies with the lively energy of Japanese style brush marks. Ballard-Wyllie’s focus is consistently landscape printmaking and painting, with forays into projects such as a monumental Science-Art projects and a two year residency at a Cancer Research UK laboratory, culminating in several artworks. These include a 42 meter screenprinted science research (DNA) artwork that hangs in The Royal Mint, a twenty metre ‘Whit Read Moreework’ piece in which she, in her Wyllie O Hagan partnership, championed cancer advocacy groups in the USA and UK. Ballard-Wyllie has always been an independent artist, often collaborating and organising printmaking exhibitions for international groups of artists in London, Russia and Japan. She has been co-ordinator for Art-Contact Russia-UK 1992-2002; has provided a London base Atelier for Manifestampe’s ‘Fête de l’estampe’ festival 2018-2021; has been in an artist partnership as Wyllie O Hagan since 2002; and committee member of The Printmakers’ Council for 8 years. She has project-managed and led mixed-funded urban outreach projects with multi-ethnic/ multi-religion groups in London, taught in print workshops, computer graphics studios, lectured in art history, photography and life drawing.
