About The Wood Engravers Network

Wesley Bates grew up in British Columbia and studied fine art at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick. He concentrated in painting, printmaking and drawing and studied under painter Lawren Harris Jr. and printer David Silverberg. After graduation, Bates moved to Hamilton with his wife and young daughter, and soon found himself learning the process of wood engraving when a friend gave him a set of gravers, the tools of the trade, as a gift. He has illustrated the work of a number of authors, such as Timothy Findley and Russell Smith. He currently lives in Clifford, Ontario and works out of his own studio on the Main Street of the village.A member of the Society of Wood Engravers (England), Gerard Brender a Brandis has produced hundreds of drawings, wood engravings and watercolours of flowering plants, many of which were studied in his own garden. These images have appeared in books, including Wood, Ink and Paper, A Gathering of Flowers from Shakespeare and A Wood Engraver's Alphabet (all published by The Porcupine's Quill) as well as in his own handmade editions. His work is represented in the collections of the Royal Botanical Gardens (Hamilton, Ontario), the Missouri Botanic Garden, the Arnold Arboretum and the Hunt Botanical Library. His garden and his studio are located in Stratford, Ontario.Andy English describes himself as a miniaturist, for whom the small scale and precision of wood engraving is a welcoming comfort. His work is rural, and it is autobiographic, and Andy makes no apologies for that. The artist was born in 1956 at Denver, Norfolk. He studied at the universities of Reading and London. In 1991 he produced his first wood engravings, likening the process to 'remembering, rather than learning'. In 1993 he was elected to the Cambridge Drawing Society- and in 1997 to the Society of Wood Engravers. In 2007 Andy produced his first hand-made book at the Oak Apple Press. In 2009 he was Guest Artist at the Wood Engravers' Network Annual Workshop in Chicago. In the U K he has published with The Isle Handpress, Primrose Hill Press, Westbury and Chatto
