Jenny Cowern

Raymond Higgs was trained in painting and printmaking at Carlisle College of Art, and then at The Royal Academy Schools. He lived and worked in London and Sheffield for four years before setting up a studio in Cumbria in 1968.

He has concentrated consistently on the development of his art except for a brief period in the mid 1970’s studying Chemistry with the Open University. This was of particular importance to him as it opened up an interest in experimenting with chemicals/materials which crossed the bounderies between conventional areas of printmaking. His prints reflect his great interest in process and colour.
