Ian Wilkinson

Born in Lancashire 1962, Ian Wilkinson studied at Burnley College before completing a degree in fine art at North Staffordshire Polytechnic in 1983. He now lives in Suffolk and is a co-founder of the Limberhurst Press in Cambridgeshire.

Wilkinson's inspiration comes from many different areas and aspects of his life. Working in various media including oil on canvas, silkscreen and etching, he often combines processes and techniques resulting in highly individual and tactile prints and paintings. Continuous experimentation with new materials constitutes a strong part of his work, giving it its own unique and constantly evolving identity.

Wilkinson exhibits regularly in galleries up and down the country as well as working on large scale commissions. He has work in private collections in England, Germany, U.S.A., Belgium, France, Eire, Japan, Greece and New Zealand.

Commissions include; Autotype International, The Royal Windsor Hotel - Brussels, Crowne Plaza Hotel - Marlow, British Telecom and Cambridge Antibody Technology.
