I love this dying art and its wonderful to see you keep it very well alive!
Salma - Over 30 days ago
Thanks for your appreciation Janet:) I'm sure you know this is a very old style of print which was popular around 300 years ago, and these days there are not many people who know this art and how its done. When I first started at university, my tutor told me that there's no one who can teach you wood engraving, since there is only 4 wood engraver in United Kingdom, then I did some research and looked at some professional wood engravers works. I loved it and tried my best to practice and learn. I have many more back home that I will post when I'm back.
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
That is very exciting you are drawn to this wonderful art! I so agree that it is disappearing, as artists are moving to digital,engraving will have a special demand! You have a great touch as you master this wonderful hands on art! I support your endeavors my friend!
