John Grigsby

Born: 1940, UK, England, Stoke-on-Trent

Printmaker and painter. Studied painting at Stoke-on-Trent College of Art and teacher training at Leicester College of Art, early 1960s. He taught at schools in Mexburgh, South Yorkshire, 1963-67, and Selhurst, London, 1967-1988, before being appointed Senior Lecturer in Visual Studies at Croydon College, 1988-1996. He lives and works at Beckenham, Kent, and has exhibited widely in group shows including those of the New English Art Club, the London Group and the Royal Watercolour Society. His etchings of abstract compositions are inspired by rural landscapes, particularly the rolling hills of the West Country. He utilises a range of needles and dental tools to create varied effects on his etching plates
