Andy English SWE

Andy is an East Anglian artist. He is a notable British engraver in the historic tradition. He is a consummate draughtsman and has a very natural technique carving into endgrain wood for his blocks.

His detailed images often contain visual puns and hidden elements. Typical subjects include gardens, wildlife and childhood. He has illustrated many books, including two for Barbarian Press of Canada. “Hoi Barbaroi”, the 25th anniversary biography of the press describes Andy as “an enthusiastic, congenial & Intelligent Illustrator”.

Andy English was elected to the Society of Wood Engravers in 1997. He is also an important designer and engraver of bookplates. Paul Weaver describes him as working unhurried and in detail through a lens before printing the bookplates in a Victorian hand press.

He is a true ruralist in the tradition represented by the poetry of John Clare.As Andy himself says “Printmaking suits me as I love making multiples; I like the idea that many people can own and share my work. I also love the process of printing an edition – a slow, repeated ritual with its own choreography. I have tried many types of printmaking but when, in 1991, I first picked up a graver and engraved on the endgrain of a block of wood, it seemed to me to be much more like remembering a process, rather than learning it”.
