John Douglas Piper (British, b. 1964)


John studied drawing at the Wimbledon School of Art and then went on to pursue a BA in product and furniture design at Kingston University, a field in which he subsequently worked for more than a decade. He moved from London to Cambridge in 2005 and this relocation and change of pace of life heralded a return to his creative roots and to his first true passion: that of drawing.

The close attention to the crafting of a line and of an object, so central to John’s creative education and work, lends itself particularly well to the highly exacting medium of dry-point etching. John moved from drawing to dry-point printing after coming to Cambridge and, as he states, this is an unhurried process developed in the
15th-century and most suitable for the artist trained in drawing. John’s dry-point etchings focus on the
theme of British wildlife, on the flora and fauna native to our isles, and he has a delightful and delicate touch when capturing the pose and poise of his subjects.
