Polly S' Profile
Hello! Thanks for taking the time to browse CrossStreetPress.
I'm based in sunny Brighton on the south coast of the UK and work from my top floor studio from where I can just about see the sea in between the rooftops. It's all a bit Mary Poppins as somebody once said to me.
I produce hand printed lino cuts, cutting the designs with traditional tools, then printing them onto acid free paper using either water based inks or water soluble oil based inks. I have an old ACME mangle which I use to print up my linocuts, alongside a more basic press based on two blocks which I stand on (basic I know but sometimes the simplest things are the most effective!). Both methods get used in my studio, through trial and error I know which lino's work best in which press.
Inspiration comes from things that surround me,…
