C F Tunnicliffe (1901 - 1979) was born in Macclesfield and spent his boyhood years living on a farm in a nearby village. He won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art. In 1947 he moved from Manchester to Anglesey where he spent the rest of his life. He worked in a variety of media including watercolor painting, etching and aquatint and wood engraving. Much of Tunnicliffe's work depicted birds in their natural settings. On his death, much of his personal collection of work was bequeathed to Anglesey council and can now be seen at The Anglesey Gallery. Art cards published by Canns Down Press.
