Merlyn Chesterman Tiger Prints - first of a series
Painter and printmaker Merlyn Chesterman has produced the first woodcut of a series depicting tigers and is generously donating 25% of each sale to tiger conservation.
Merlyn Chesterman - "Thought of a Tiger"
Merlyn trained in Fine Art at Bath Academy, Corsham, and in printmaking at West Dean College, Chichester, where she now teaches short courses. She works from her studio in Hartland, Devon and her work can be found in the Hong Kong Museum of Art and galleries in London and the South West. Merlyn first became excited by wood cuts in China on the Mongolian border, where they were used in place of glass in the windows and replaced each year. She has just been made an Associate of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, (whose base is Bankside Gallery, next to Tate Modern, London).
Prints from the woodcut can be purchased for £400 each and should be ordered direct from Merlyn.
