John became an aspiring printmaker after following Angela Lai Yen’s lino-cutting courses at Bath Artist Printmakers. After further courses in etching, aquatint, photopolymer and cyanoprint he has been exploring how modern technologies can be used to complement traditional printmaking techniques. John starts his work by drawing images on either paper or an iPad with a digital pencil, using a simple plotter to transfer the image onto surfaces such as zinc and vinyl/lino for printing using traditional printmaking techniques. John is fortunate to live near Bath where he has been able to learn from helpful members of Bath Artist Printmakers, Bath College and Bath Spa University.
