Wednesday’s woman wood engraver …

December 24, 2014

As I continue to look out for women wood engravers I come across Yvonne Skargon (1931-2010) who was born in Essex and studied wood engraving at Colchester School of Art. For 25 years she worked as an illustrator mainly on botanical and culinary themes and commissioned by many food and horticultural magazines and journals.

    Thank you for sharing that, very interesting to read – especially as the lady in question came from my home County.
