Announcement   Hello I'm a full time lino print maker/artist based in Worcester, UK. I work almost exclusively in the labour intensive medium of linocut printing: cutting and printing each design by hand, so no two prints are exactly the same. The prints are also sometimes hand coloured using acrylic or watercolour paint or finished with gold leaf.

My influences are fairly obvious from the work: tattoo imagery, religion/religious art, music, nature and politics.

My commercial work includes bespoke designs for skateboard companies. I’ve also produced work for Gravis, Volcom, MPORA, Howies, Nokia and designed the Poetry of The Deed album cover for Frank Turner a few years ago.

More info at www.chrisbourkeart.com and you can fine me on instagram, facebook and twitter as @chrisbourkeart

About

Handmade Lino Prints

I've been working full time as a print maker for the last seven years, almost exclusively as a lino print maker.

The entire process is handmade: cutting/carving each print block by hand, printing each piece entirely by hand, and often hand finishing by colouring in details with either acrylic or watercolour paint.

My work has been featured in several books and magazines and I've produced images commercially for several companies and individuals. I've also designed several skateboard graphics over the years. For more bio info visit www.chrisbourkeart.com

I sell my work directly here, through my website and through galleries.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

It may be possible to make a dedication on a print next to the signature, or on a hand written note if you're sending a special gift, please get in touch to enquire.

I occasionally take on commissions for custom designs but these can often take months to complete due to my work load and labour intensive method of my print making. Feel free to enquire.

Framing

Please note it is not possible for me to provide frames for any of my prints.

Wholesale availability

For wholesale enquiries, please email me.

Process and Materials

All of my lino prints are completely handmade, hand cut and hand printed by me. This means that each print is unique and no two pieces are ever exactly the same. I hand colour and finish some prints too, in acrylic or watercolour paint and gold leaf. Each listing contains a description of what materials were used to make it.

International Shipping

I don't usually use tracking on international shipping, if this is something you particularly need, please contact me before purchasing to see if it's possible, as extra payment for tracking may be required.

Please note that shipping to the USA can take from 2-6 weeks, at busy times such as Christmas, it can take 4-6 weeks.
