Daisies by Ian Stephens
These cheerful daisies adorned the contents page of Slightly Foxed Issue 38, Summer 2013.
Ian Stephens was born in North Buckinghamshire in 1940. He studied illustration and lettering at Northampton School of Art and started engraving immediately on leaving. He has worked as an art teacher, a graphic designer and illustrator. His main concern is landscape and its form, uses and denizens. He says:
‘I try not to let the medium or process get in the way. Though I enjoy engraving and printing wood blocks immensely, it is only the medium
through which I choose to explore my ideas; a secondary rather than a primary consideration’.
He is now semi-retired but produces drawings for The Jackdaw and is still engraving.
