Follow your heart and live your dreams, is what we all would like to do, celebrate every day. And it does not have to be grand or record breaking, each and every one of us has their own goal!
This is a textile linocut collage, on a gorgeous 100% vintage biscuit beige linen, I have added different fabrics, all printed with my own linocuts, that is, all the patterns printed on the fabrics etc are not only made by me, but also printed on to a myriad of different materials, that I then carefully cut to assemble the pieces I need and want for the finished collage. I have freehand embroidered quite extensively over the flowers and the face is embroidered on. I finish the collage by backing it so all the threads and endings are protected and it also serves to reinforce the collage for the framing.
It is signed in stitch on the front and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
The collage measures 18" x 32.5" ( 48 cm x 84 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 if you want to gift it!
I send these unique pieces of art with courier part so it is with you quickly and part so it can be tracked all the way.
