Ian Phillips


A chance encounter with a small book of ‘Hiroshiges 53 stages of the Tokiado’ woodcuts, whilst studying Illustration at Leicester Polytechnic, seduced me into the world of relief print from which I never escaped. I taught myself linocut reduction printmaking while working as a freelance Illustrator in London.

In 2001 I moved to Wales to concentrate on the landscape and becoming a better printmaker. I have now been working with lino for over twenty years and have exhibited widely across the country as well as at The Mall Galleries, London, and in Hong Kong and the US. I recently had a very inspirational residency at the Djumbunji Print studio, Cairns, Australia. I have been a demonstrator at Art in Action where I met Merlyn and Julia, a chance meeting which lead to the exciting collaboration which is Pine Feroda.
