Hugh Ribbans trained at Canterbury College of Art. Relief printmaking was his craft subject at college, particularly linocutting, and in 1989 he purchased a restored Columbian press, c.1860.
He produces linocuts and woodcuts, sometimes mixing heavily grained wood – often driftwood – and lino in his prints.
Subject matter can be images of animals and birds or people and places seen when travelling. Always with an obsession with line and a reverence to Edward Bawden.
He has exhibited at the Barbican Gallery, the National Theatre, the National Print Exhibition, the Printmakers Council Open, The Society of Wood Engravers, the Society of Wildlife Artists and the Affordable Artfair.
