Ross Loveday was born in Wales and practised as an optician in Essex before starting to draw and paint in his early thirties. His early works were primarily acrylic on canvas, although his focus broadened to include printmaking. He made his first prints alongside Stanley Jones at the Curwen Studio near Cambridge, later working at the Leicester Print Workshop, where he specialised in drypoint and carborundum printing.
Ross is the winner of several awards and prizes, including The Trevelyan Award prize at Originals '08 and the Intaglio Print Prize at the National Open Print Exhibition held at the Bankside Gallery in 2016. He was voted Printmakers' Printmaker at Printfest 2012. His work can be found in The British Museum and in H.R.H. The Prince of Wales' private collection. Ross has had four major solo exhibitions in London. He lives and works in Suffolk.
