My handmade, limited edition prints are inspired by my life around me, and by seeing the beauty in the mundane. You will also see a layered colour palette, often bright but muted, and subtle. I aim to create prints that can inspire a smile, a memory, and a piece of art that you can form your own personal associations with. I work with linocut printing method, primarily reduction linocut where the block is carved away with every layer. This means that all the prints in a series are handmade and limited edition. Also, this appeals to me because of its spontaneity and immediacy, and that there is a point of 'no return'. I like living on the edge, I suppose! I also love the graphical simplicity of linocut, and how simple marks and lines can convey textures and emotions.
I work from my studio at home, and ink each print myself by hand, and then hand burnish each print in an edition. This means that I work with very small editions, and each print is unique and original. When you purchase one of my artwork, you buy a labour of love.
I am happy to provide more information on the making of a print if you would like this, and also send you some photos of the process and the lino block that it was created from to accompany your print.
I take great pride in wrapping my prints in acid-free tissue papers, and bring my individual touch with handwritten cards and notes. This makes opening the package an exciting and luxurious experience.
I hope my prints bring you as much joy as they have to me. And, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions at all!
