Phil Greenwood (Welsh) was born in 1943 in North Wales and raised between London and Wales. He studied printmaking at Harrow and Hornsey Colleges of Art. Greenwood has been a printmaker for 50 years. He has taught and lectured in printmaking, always committed to developing and honing his craft, specifically etching. His work has been shown internationally and is in the collections of many British institutions. Greenwood is known for his landscape etchings created on copper plates that feature a wide range of color and tone produced by few plates. His work focuses on the natural organization of landscapes and their colors. Frequently collecting photographs and sketches from his environment, Greenwood's work explores the atmosphere created by a landscape as opposed to recreating a specific place.
"I want people to like my images for what they are, somewhere that reminds them of something personal to them which is why I seldom give them a specific place name." – Phil Greenwood
