John Heywood has been a member of Edinburgh Printmakers since the mid-80s and worked almost exclusively in Etching.

Etching is a printmaking technique that uses chemical action to produce incised lines in a metal printing plate which then hold the applied ink and form the image. John's work has always been drawing based, capturing an atmosphere in the image and re-creating a time of day or a moment in time. This helps the viewer connect with the work and makes for a shared experience.
