Derek Gauld, member of WYPW for 10 years and founder member of York Printmakers, a vibrant community which has grown to over 50 printmakers.
Derek mainly works with soft ground etch, often starting with sugarlift to keep the immediate feel of sketching, and adding layers of tone through aquatint. Colours are sometimes added before print to add another memory of the day.
A keen walker, camper and outdoor swimmer, he captures the moods of local landscapes as well as being inspired by scenes further afield.
He has exhibited in local art establishments and a successful solo exhibition in Scarborough Art Gallery.
