Artist's description:

Chumbos, or Prickly Pear, are so well guarded by those spines, get past them and there is just sweetness, just like you and me to a certain extent!

On a piece of vintage 100% linen I have printed a collagraph, that is, a surface worked by hand to create an image, I then ink it up with etching inks and take it through my etching press, once the print has dried, i have embroidered on machine over the entire image and last, added the spines by hand in thread.
All in all, this is a unique piece of art, and I have left a nice border of the linen so you can frame it just like you would a print.
There is only this one, so this piece is what you receive.
The size of the actual printed area is 39 cm x 39 cm ( 15" x 15" ) with a border of 4 cm all round ( 1.5" )
I have backed the print on fabric with vlieseline, a liner that steadies the fabric and protects all the threads and stitching on the back.

I mail the collagraph to you from my studio in Denmark, it comes rolled up in a tube, co I have a lot of experience shipping art, so it is wrapped securely to arrive safely, see my reviews!

Thanks so much for visiting my shop, and welcome back soon,
