Edwina Ellis is a graphic designer and printmaker. Born in Sydney, she moved to London in 1972. After working as a jeweller in both Australia and London, she took up wood engraving, specialising in multiblock colour engravings. She has travelled widely in India, Africa and Arabia, which has been a great source of inspiration. Since 1984 she has exhibited regularly in both solo and group exhibitions. Her work can be seen in several public collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, Ashmolean Museum and the University Library of California. She was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers in 1985. Since 1992, she has lived at Ystrad Meurig in Wales. Between 2004 and 2007 she produced designs incorporating UK bridges for pound coins.
