Born in Mortlake, London, 1958. A printmaker working in a small village in Kent and on the North Norfolk coast.
Over the last few years, I have been concentrating on multi block linocuts using an Albion Press nicknamed 'Hettie'. The Albion press was made by Henry Watts, 1859, Southwark.
Max Angus linocuts have been exhibited at The Society of Wildlife Artists (SWLA) annual exhibition, ‘The Natural Eye’ and also as part of ‘The Discerning Eye Exhibition’ at the Mall Galleries in London.
