During the Second World War Sybil Andrews worked in a shipyard where she met her husband, and soon after the couple emigrated to the remote logging town on Vancouver Island, Canada. During the journey to her new home blocks for several of her prints partially melted in the hot hold of the ship. However, she experienced no such misfortune to her artistic career when she arrived in Canada: there Andrews achieved, at least at first, a large following which lasted well into the 1950’s. In the 1960’s she fell into obscurity, but was rediscovered in the 1970’s. She died in 1992 leaving a body of work totalling almost 80 linocuts. Since then Sybil Andrews’ work has met with wide critical acclaim and ever increasing popularity. Her colour linocuts were featured extensively in the recent (2008) Fine Arts, Boston/ Metropolitan, New York British Prints From the Machine Age - Rhythms of Modern Life 1914–1939 exhibition, and her work is held in major collections around the world.
