June Crisfield Chapman is a renowned printmaker specialising in wood engraving, a medium in which she has developed a strong individual style well-adapted to her subject matter which includes book and magazine illustration - particularly botanical and natural history subjects, folklore and myth, and theatrical scenes and characters. Chapman's work is characterised by strong and fluent lines, not easily achieved when working with the resistant grain of a wood block.

The print 'Mrs Ogmore Pritchard and Her Two Ghostly Husbands' was inspired by characters in Dylan's Thomas's 'Under Milk Wood', and was her first major work in the medium of wood-engraving.
