Respected as a printmaker for over four decades, Blackadder is the first woman ever elected to membership in both the Royal Academy and the Royal Scottish Academy. She was awarded the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II. During her career, Blackadder has experimented with a range of printing media including lithography, etching, aquatint, drypoint, woodcut and screenprint beginning with her student days in the early 1950s. Her first prints were published in 1958; since then Blackadder has worked with a range of studios and publishers, including Curwen Studio, The Mercury Gallery, Peacock Printers and, most extensively, the Glasgow Print Studio.
