When I'm not beavering away at the GCI day job, I love to make wood engraved prints. I engrave on box, lemon or pear endgrain wood and print them on my vintage Farley galley press.
Last year I submitted a print to the Society of Wood Engravers Annual Exhibition, and I'm pleased to say the print was accepted. It travelled around the UK for a year with the other 117 prints , showing at Bankside Gallery in London, Bristol City Museum, Northern Print in Newcastle and Art Jericho, in Oxford.
This year, I submitted another print, above, for this year's exhibition and to my delight, it was also selected. I don't know the itinerary of venues for this year, except it will be shown again at Bankside Gallery, details below:
