Contact the artist for framing options. Wood engraving is a form of fine art printmaking. The artist uses specialised tools to create the image in relief (and reverse) on the end grain of a block of hardwood – usually boxwood – by removing the ‘white’ parts of the image. This technique is painstaking and highly technical, and allows for the creation of exquisitely detailed works. Rebecca’s wood engravings have been exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, with the Society of Wood Engravers, and in galleries across the world from Japan to the USA.
