Bio

Georgina Heywood-Smith has become well known for her signature black and white engraved artworks, all inspired by her surroundings throughout the south-west of England.

Following a distinguished career in textile design, Georgina now practices in one of the oldest forms of printmaking to create her work, and the labour-intensive process to create her pieces allows for time and space to study her chosen subjects, in great detail.

Her work is founded in realism, and is a close observation of her environment. The themes of the artwork range from the permanence of history and architecture, to the fragility of seasons and nature.
