Wood engraving is a printmaking method distinct from woodcut in that the line is incised into the woodblock. Rather than the background being cut away to leave a line in relief. In addition to this it is usually done on the end grain of a block of boxwood. This surface is very hard, and so extremely fine detail is possible.
Fiona is a printmaker and designer based in Bristol, UK. She studied Graphic Fine Art at Canterbury and makes hand printed screen prints, cyanotype prints, and foil badges, magnets and mirrors featuring her illustrations.
For the last few years Fiona has been using screen print and cyanotype in her artwork. She also uses coloured metallic and matte foils to make badges and small items. Her artwork draws on a lot of natural themes such as plants, leaves, trees and creatures including an array of birds. Fiona often draws directly from nature or from photographs that she has taken and regularly lugs her heavy telephoto lens about to get photos of birds!
