About me

Ben Goodman is an artist and wood engraver. He is an elected member of The Society of Wood Engravers and has exhibited extensively throughout the UK and internationally. His work is part of the national collections at The V&A, MMU and CAFA.

His work focuses primarily on portraiture and the human body, and uses the reduction method to produce intricate wood engravings that resemble miniature paintings. The human figure is a constant inspiration for his work and Ben uses engraving to explore the variety and beauty of the human form. From the subtle shadows running across a person’s back, to the complex structure of the human face.
