Not sure really, maybe 1980-90's as it's fairly new looking although it does have a tiny bit of rust on the metal hooks.

I'll photo the back of it later on....

Hi TC, All I can find is a Michael Johnson, originally from Berwick, later (70s) living in London. Born 1954. Trained Sheffield and Nottingham School of Art.

I'm sure I've seen that print before. I would say she's a 60/70s gal

It looks like mine is a more modern print compared to this version... Ebay print

There's not a lot of them out there (any version) which is a  shame as it's absolutely stunning.
