three very curious little owls, looking at the world outside, wondering what it holds for them, much like all babies. Our wonderful world, full of beauty, all you have to do is lift your eyes!
WHAT IS A LINOCUT?: A handprinted linocut reduction print, reduction means that as I am printing the very short edition of only 9 prints , I cut away areas to keep the color I just printed. This is quite a complicated process, great fun, as you don't really know how the print is going to turn out until the end, it is a technique I enjoy very much, as it feels quite like you are sculpting with your linocut knife and painting with your roller of ink. Experience has taught me incredibly much about this way of printing, managing the ink, using pressure, etc etc, given the choice this is my favorite way of printmaking!
All my lino prints are printed by me, printmaking is my big love!
I have used a range of beautiful non toxic blockprinting inks in quite soft yet happy colors.
SIZE: "a Good View" is printed on a warm cream piece of velvety printmaking paper,
