A handprinted linocut reduction print, reduction means that as I am printing the very short edition of 11 prints, I cut away areas to keep the colour I just printed. You can join over 25.000 viewers on Youtube, to see how a reduction print is made and printed by me, go to and click on printmaking movies. All my lino prints are printed by me, printmaking is my big love!
I have kept this print in a very muted color range, a sooty black background, like I imagine the depths of the ocean, a light gray, a grayish blue and a dash of terracotta.

Heads or Tails, the serendipity of chance, being a fish or a bird, both capable of flight in their own way..... as an artist the concept of effortlessly moving through your medium is something that astonishes me every time.

"Heads or Tails" is printed on a warm beautiful piece of velvety Fabriano printmaking paper,
the image measures 9.5" x 15.5" (24 cm x 39 cm)
and paper is 15" x 22". (38 cm x 56 cm)
This is a quite a large print, and strong enough to be framed even larger to make a real splash on your wall!

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

I'll mail it to you in a tube, protected by tissuepaper and a cellophane sleeve so it arrives safely. It comes with a flier explaining what a lino reduction is. See thumbnail above. I don't charge for shipping!

If you have any questions, just get in touch with me!

Thank you for looking in my shop, and welcome back.
