Spennymoor Town Council

John Grey



I am a printmaker and photographer, working in the North of England and Cornwall.  Most of my recent work has been in printmaking. I produce prints by etching and engraving metal plates and then printing from these using a traditional etching press. 

I studied at London University  in the 1970s gaining degrees in chemistry and training to be a science teacher.  Since then I have worked as a teacher and more recently, after moving to the North East, as a lecturer at Sunderland University.  Throughout this time I have maintained a strong interest in photography, working with traditional film and and pinhole cameras.

Over the last two years I have been working on printmaking, mostly steel plate etchings.  Currently I do most of my printing at Northern Print in Newcastle.

I was the winner of the Peter Weldon purchase prize in the Northern Print Footprints 2015 exhibition
