Biography

Artist Printmaker John Heywood works almost exclusively in the medium of etching, producing work that is heavily inspired by his surroundings in Edinburgh. John previously studied at Lancaster University, however, it was after joining the Edinburgh Printmakers Workshop in the mid 1980’s that he truly progressed his craft. His extensive career has led him to exhibit at the Royal Scottish Academy, the Scottish Society of Artists and the Visual Arts Society of Scotland, as well as numerous galleries in the UK including Edinburgh and Cambridge. The artist describes his work as “a personal response to living and working in Edinburgh for over 20 years. Many have their origins in a response to a particular view of the city.”
