Neil Bousfield studied Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking at the University of West of England, Bristol where he gained an MA. His BA (Hons) was in Animation at West Surrey College of Art & Design followed by a Msc in 3D Computer Graphics at Teesside University.
Neil's prints are inspired by a sense of place and a personal interpretation of landscape, place and people.
He says: 'Engraving demands a determined commitment of a focused and singular nature; like a dog chasing a rabbit, nothing else matters! On an aesthetic level, engraving allows me to express my interest in pattern, texture, landscape, shape and colour'
Neil's work is widely exhibited in the UK and the USA and is held within major public and private collections.
