Merlyn Chesterman is an accomplished artist with a career spanning over four decades, gaining worldwide recognition for her breathtaking woodcut prints.

Merlyn first became excited by wood cuts in China on the Mongolian border, where they were used in place of glass in the windows and replaced each year. For her work she uses mainly lime wood, with its superb cutting quality, along with elm and plywood, choosing boards for their particular grain. She prints the large prints on Okawara, a Japanese paper or bright white Sommerset Satin, using oil-based or water-washable ink and often grading colour on the roller and adding extender to dilute the pigment. She usually uses several blocks, one printed over the other.


Merlyn Chesterman is a member of the print collective Pine Feroda and a Senior Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. Chesterman's work has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world, and she has been recognized with numerous awards and accolades for her contributions to the art world. Her prints are highly sought after by collectors and art enthusiasts alike, and her impact on the woodcut medium is immeasurable.


We are honored to have her works on display in our gallery and we hope our customers will appreciate the unique beauty and intricacy of her prints.
