Neil Bousfield is a British artist living and working on the Norfolk Coast. He studied at Bristol's University of the West of England where he gained a Master of Arts in Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking. He is an elected member of the The Society of Wood Engravers and a fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. His work is held in various public collections including the National Art Library, Victoria and Albert Museum, Ashmolean Museum, MMU Special Collections, Ohio State University Libraries, China Central Academy of Fine Arts and the Jiangsu Art Museum.
Working in relief print and contemporary wood engraving, Neil's practice explores landscape narrative and the concepts of change, transformation and geographical palimpsest, time and place. His engravings are realised from drawings made on location, then developed in the studio. Recent works have developed from observational drawings of the landscape made in response to the environmental and geological narratives near his home on the North Norfolk Coast.
