Jane Lydbury           

 

Jane Lydbury has worked as a printmaker and illustrator.  She has had work published in books by both commercial and private presses, & has also exhibited her prints widely, including at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.  Her inspiration continues to be English and European literature, both contemporary and ancient.  Her work is people- centered and is underpinned by an interest in the workings of the unconscious as expressed in myth and legend.  She has her own long-term project to illustrate Ovid’s Metamorphoses with wood engravings, and is currently working on a commission, a series of engravings for poems inspired by interviews with British soldiers returning from Afghanistan.

 

Most of her illustrations are done as wood engravings, a traditional technique of hand-cutting an image on a small end-grain boxwood block, and then printing it.  There is no “original” as such, each print is hand-printed by the artist in a limited edition of 60 to 100.
