Neil Bousfield studied at Bristol’s University of the West of England where he gained a Master of Arts degree in Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking, awarded with distinction in 2007. Born in Middlesbrough, Neil grew up in the coastal village of Marske-by-the-Sea, in North Yorkshire. 

An elected member of The Society of Wood Engravers and the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, Neil exhibits regularly with both societies alongside exhibitions in the UK and USA. His work is held in private and major public collections including the Ashmolean Museum, National Art Library, Victoria & Albert Prints and Drawings Collection, Ohio State University Libraries, USA and Manchester Metropolitan University Special Collections.  

Although contexts change, drawing and narrative remain steadfast within Neil’s personal practice within printmaking and the technique of wood engraving. Neil now lives and works in Norfolk.
