Announcement   My process of Lino-printing involves hand drawing on to a piece of linoleum, then,using the linoleum as a relief surface, the image is cut using specialist tools.

The raised (un-carved) areas are then inked with a roller and impressed onto paper. This process is repeated for every colour in the print. This is known as reduction printing since at every stage more and more of the linoleum is cut away until very little of it remains.

The actual printing can be done by hand or with a press.

The tradition of Lino-printing was born from that of Woodblock printing which dates back hundreds of years.

About

The impact of my training as an Illustrator is apparent in my work. I am rarely without either my sketchbook and/or my camera and use them constantly as tools with which to record the world around me. This then furnishes me with a supply of inspiration. Narrative and storytelling also play a huge role. I am also influenced by snippets of everyday conversation, colloquialisms, literature and poetry. My immediate environment is reflected in my prints as I react to objects, colours, pattern and shape. People and place feature heavily.

I work to communicate through my printmaking - aiming for a sense of warmth, joy and sometimes humour in my work. I find the craft of relief printmaking is a source of dialogue which allows me to express a range of emotions and commentaries.

Here you will find a selection of hand pulled reduction Linoprints, each, one of a very limited run.
All pieces are crafted by hand, often there are slight variations from one print to the next. That's the beauty of hand pulled printmaking. Although every care is taken to ensure the images represent the print to its fullest, please allow for slight variations.
