Ian Phillips is an internationally renowned printmaker known best for his stunning linocut prints of the Welsh landscape which he has been hand printing for over twenty years. Ian Phillips had an early fascination with all things Japanese which introduced him to the beauty and craftsmanship of Japanese prints. He specialises in consecutive series of prints taken from drawings done while walking long distance footpaths or exploring particular areas of scenic beauty. His reduction lino and woodcuts, by their very nature, are low in edition, as each phase can only be printed at one time only, making way for the next ‘layer’.
Ian Phillips is also a member of the North Devon print collaboration, Pine Feroda and in 2010 he was made a member of the Royal Cambrian Academy.
