John Brunsdon (1933 - 2014) is a distinguished British painter/printmaker whose prints have been exhibited world-wide. He studied at the Cheltenham College of Art, then etching at the Royal College of Art for three years from 1955. He taught printmaking before becoming an artist/printmaker full time in 1977.
From his studio in Norfolk, he travelled across the UK making preparatory painting and drawings for his prints. His subjects included both landscape and townscape. With our encouragement he visited the Gower peninsula, and produced a best selling series of etchings on this, the UK's first designated "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty"
