John Preston

Preston John Snow and WaterI started etching in 1980 at a CCAT evening class in Cambridge; I have continued working in etching and aquatint ever since. I am a member of the Cambridge Drawing Society and Cambridge Open Studios; my studio is at St Barnabas Press.

Open exhibition successes include Royal Academy Summer Exhibition (twice), Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers (5 times), Premio De Grabado Maximo Ramos (Ferrol, Spain). I have exhibited 8 times at The Old Fire Engine House, Ely; in 2014 I had a sold-out exhibition in the Heilongjiang Province Fine Art Museum. Harbin, China. My work features mainly buildings and landscapes, in etching and aquatint. While I enjoy the fine line of etching, my recent work has been mostly in sugar lift aquatint.
