When I found this piece of Shibori dyed denim (in my mums wardrobe ;o)) I knew straight away what I wanted to do with it........ the ocean and all that lives in it is such a source of inspiration to me, and this guy, he is just enormous in his own world, a king of the deep.
This is a textile linocut collage, on a gorgeous 100% cotton shibori dyed denim, I have added different fabrics, all printed with my own linocuts including the fish, that is, all the patterns etc are made by me. I have freehand embroidered over the flowers and the fish head quite extensively, mostly with turquoise and blue thread to enhance the collage.
It is signed in stitch on the front and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
The collage measures 19" x 35" ( 48 cm x 90 cm) I have intended for this collage to be framed behind glass to protect the textiles.
This collage arrives carefully wrapped, I roll it up in a mailing tube with tissue paper and a plastic sleeve using many years experience of packaging artwork. I can also add a personal hand written message of your choosing - just mail me your message and I add it to the package. Each collage also arrives with a free blank greeting card featuring one of my works making it easier for you to add a personal touch! I send it with courier so it is with you quickly and can be tracked all the way.
