Artist's description:

The King of the beach, surveying his domain, so sure in the purpose of his life and his place in the world!

WHAT IS A LINOCUT?: A handprinted linocut reduction print, reduction means that as I am printing the very short edition of 10 prints, I cut away areas to keep the color I just printed. This is quite a complicated process, great fun, as you don't really know how the print is going to turn out until the end, it is a technique I enjoy very much, as it feels quite like you are sculpting with your linocut knife and painting with your roller with ink. Experience has taught me incredibly much about this way of printing, managing the ink, using pressure, etc etc, given the choice this is my favorite way of printmaking!
You can join over 60.000 viewers on Youtube, to see how a reduction print is made and printed by me, go to and search under my name or have a look in the "me at work" section here in my shop.
All my lino prints are printed by me, printmaking is my big love!
I have used a range of real beach colors, grays, violets, a happy blue sky and a sooty black to add joy to any space you choose to hang your seagull in.

SIZE: "Top of the Heap" is printed on a white piece of velvety printmaking paper,
the image measures 15.5" x 10.5" (39 cm x 27 cm)
and the paper measures 13.5" x 19" (34 cm x 49 cm)
Framing it quite large can make it a real focal point in any room. It does fit a range of standard frames. The interior photo is not entirely to scale

EDITION: I have signed, titled and numbered each print.
Please be aware that I can't guarantee you will receive the number in the photo.

SHIPPING: I'll mail it to you, protected by tissuepaper and a cellophane sleeve so it arrives safely (see my reviews).
It comes with a flier explaining what a lino reduction is. See thumbnail above.

If you have any questions, just get in touch with me!
Thank you for looking in my shop, and welcome back.
