A print which reflects a little of the optimism I'm feeling for the upcoming months of spring and summer finally arriving!
This is a a linocut print combined with chine colle' for the colours. Chine colle' simply means collage and to do this I have hand painted tissue paper then carefully glued the pieces onto the cartridge paper then printed the linocut on the top. This gives a lovely translucence to the colour, which contrasts well with the graphic nature of this print.
Please be aware that printmaking can often mean that ink marks occur on the borders of the image, these are often unavoidable and are part of the hand crafted nature of the artwork.
For orders further afield my pieces will be sent to you rolled in a sturdy tube.
