Artist's description:

I came across an old photo of a young woman, it must've been taken during the 30s or 40s. I have no clue who she was or what had happened to her, yet her gaze was one of intensity as she looked off into the distance; she looked like she was keeping a secret in her head while the photo was being taken...if only photographs could talk.
Straight away I wanted to capture some of that mystery and turn into an image that would hopefully have a similar affect. I added the blackbird whispering in her ear because of that old saying, "A little bird told me", struck me as a fitting symbol for why she has such an intense look of knowing.
This is a two block linocut print of a very limited number of prints.
