C. Haigh Wood and Regency prints

Dear Pemberley friends:
I recently purchased a Regency print of some sort at an antique store in North Georgia. The artist's name is C. Haigh Wood and it is called "Two Strings for her Bow." I fell in love with it right away because it shows a young woman in an Empire gown seated in her drawing room, her chair between two ardent suitors. She is sewing and looks to be quite content that she is nearly ignoring these frustrated young bucks.
Does anyone know where I might find out more about this artist and pictures like it? It is clearly an old picture and a note on the back reports that it was framed in London in the 1890s by a frame maker's whose name I cannot make out.
