About The Artist

David Ayres took up printmaking in 1977 while lecturing in Chemistry in the University of London. He learnt the techniques of etching from David Carr at the Camden School of Art, and later from Peter Jacques at the University of Hertfordshire.

On retirement and with a fully equipped studio at home this work has become a principal interest and commissions are accepted.

He has exhibited his work at:

Gallery 273, Queen Mary College
The Margaret Harvey Gallery, St Albans
The Llewellyn Alexander Gallery, Waterloo, London
The Angel Row Gallery, Nottingham and at
The National Print Exhibition, the Mall Gallery
