Howard Phipps

 


Howard Phipps studied Fine Art at the Gloucestershire College of Art in Cheltenham.  He is a painter/printmaker with a special interest in wood engraving.

A member of the Royal West of England Academy since 1979, and the Society of Wood Engravers since 1985, he has also been a frequent exhibitor at Royal Academy summer exhibitions where he received the Contemporary Print Award for colour engraving.  In 2003 & 2004 he received the landscape print prize at the National Print Exhibition in London.

He has illustrated books for Bloomsbury, Century, The Fleece Press, Perdix Press, Country Life Magazine and The Folio Society (Charlotte Bronte, Shakespeare and Tennyson's Lady of Shalott).  His closest collaboration has been with The Whittington Press who published Stubble Burning (1982) with poems by Roland Gant.  They have since published three more books of his wood engravings - Interiors (1985), Further Interiors (1992), The Ebble Valley (2007).

Howard Phipps has a particular interest in the downland landscape of Wiltshire and Dorset.  His drawings are all made on location and the resulting wood engravings create an image which captures a recognisable spirit of place.
