Lino Prints

What you see here are hand carved and hand printed, limited edition artworks. Lino printing is a direct descendant of wood cut, from the earliest days printing. A flat surface, a block, is drawn on then cut and gouged to incise a shape and pattern. The flat surface that’s left is rolled over with ink, paper placed on top and then put through a press or in some cases simply rubbed with the back of a spoon. To get more than one colour the same surface is cut again, working from light ink colour to dark, reducing the surface area of the block. Hence the term ‘reduction’ print.

I have two main types of print here, ones inspired by the world we see, and others from my imagination.

Prices here are for unframed prints. Large prints sent in a tube, smaller ones may be sent flat.
