Wayne Singleton

Wayne Singleton is an Australian Relief Block printmaker specialising in black and white, and hand coloured, linocut prints.

Born in Melbourne, Wayne initially trained as a Stereo Cutter (relief block maker) at ACI Fibre Packages before he studied art and design at Preston Institute of Technology. He also holds post graduate qualifications in the areas of secondary education, social science and religious education.

He has been an exhibiting printmaking artist since the 1980’s. He now lives in Brisbane where he designs, cuts and colours his prints in his home studio. Wayne is a member of the Brisbane Artists’ Collective called "Impress" and he produces his prints using their Kedron studio workshops.

In the past Wayne has supported his art practice by teaching drawing, art and design both at secondary school level and in adult education sectors. He now works as a full time printmaker.
