As Linda Ruth Kirk, she was born in Sutton Coldfield in 1950.

About the wood engraved print:
It is a edition limited to 30, this being the first one in the edition. I have spent some time researching to find others from this edition and I have not found any more of this print "The Gardener".

This is signed and dated by the artist on the bottom right corner and the edition number 1/30 in the bottom left corner. These are shown in photo 10 above.

This will be posted with a thick board backing / stiffener to prevent bending.

Condition:
There are some marks to the card mount and card back, see photos 6 - 9 above.
