Jonathan Ashworth specialises in traditional woodcuts and wood engravings but recently he’s also been dabbling in screen printing and grabbing our attention with his latest portfolio additions.

In his latest screen print, showing children climbing a tree his intricate marks and considered line work still play a large role and evoke a feeling of nostalgia and other worldliness often captured in mid-century print making as do his woodcut prints.

Jonathan is aware and extremely mindful of his natural materials and plays with the possibility of subtle textures in his work to create depth and character.
