Phil Greenwood was born in 1943 in Dolgellau, Wales and educated at Harrow College of Art. He has taught and lectured on printmaking and now works full time as a professional printmaker. The examples here are typical of his style and of his subject matter which is normally landscape. He uses an etching technique with usually a limited range of colours but using different etching depth and overprinting to achieve a depth of tone.
He has exhibited at the Royal Academy and Bankside Galleries in London, and in overseas exhibitions. In 1979, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers. "Phil" is an abbreviation of his full name of "Philip".
Another modern English printmaker, who has adopted a similar distinctive style is Graham Evernden.
