Jonathan Comerford studied at the Ruth Prowse School of Art, majoring in printmaking and drawing. On completion of his studies, he spent two years abroad furthering his printmaking career at Peacock Printmakers in Aberdeen, Scotland. He returned to South Africa to establish a printmaking workshop in 1988, when the apartheid regime was still in place. The initial purpose of the workshop was to enable the artist and fellow artists from diverse communities to exchange ideas, information, and technical knowledge and have access to an equipped printmaking studio. Hard Ground Printmakers closed it`s doors in 2006 when Jonathan moved to the UK to pursue his printmaking career. He now practices as a freelance printmaker, exhibits regularly and collaborates with artists. Jonathan Comerford - Hard ground Printmakers - now operates out of London, England, and is available for personal collaboration, editioning, portfolio production and print consultation.
