John Brunsdon was born in Cheltenham in 1933 and has become one of Britain's most distinguished printmakers. He studied at the Royal College of Art from 1955 to 1958, and he was head of the printmaking department at St.Albans College of Art for sixteen years. He is an Associate of the Royal College of Art and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers. His time is now devoted to his printing studio in Suffolk where all his work is individually hand etched, inked, coloured and printed. He takes delight in the texture and decorative qualities of etched marks and the sweeping shapes of broad colour which fuse into timeless images. He has exhibited widely in the United States and Europe and has participated in many one-man shows and group exhibitions in this country. His work is represented in the Arts Council and the British Council collections the Victoria and Albert Museum and various private and public collections in the United States.
