I love my print! An interesting and beautiful way to portray two amazing, historic buildings in Haarlem. The linocut arrived at my house in the U.S. less than a week after being shipped from the Netherlands! Thanks to the artist! I highly recommend her work.

I ordered ròmhadh, the choking groan of a cow with a potato in its mouth, and I haven't regretted it for a minute

I couldn't choose among all these, so I bought a set of three! And I definitely recommend getting the little book to go with. When your friends see these they will certainly want to learn more words! I love this! I had nice communication with Catriona too. The prints were as described, shipped quickly and very well-packaged.

I love this greeting card. It’s so lovely and wintery. The windmill is beautiful and the lovely sky and clouds behind it make this scene even more magical. The little house, the fence the trees in the background and the wonderful snow make this an enchanting little scene. Catriona is a marvelous artist. I love her art. This is such a calming serene scene and it makes me happy. This shipped fast and was well packaged. I would love to make more purchases from Catriona and her wonderful store.

I was so pleased to find Catriona's Etsy shop. We hadn't realised that she had prints for sale of the images from her book. I am delighted with this gorgeous print. It looks fantastic in its frame. All the prints look beautiful in the flesh. Everything arrived in one piece and it was great being able to chat with Catriona via email regarding the order and the shipping. Just now need to inspire her to produce a new set!
Back to the inky stinky basics of carving, printing and painting.
Catrìona Black makes original, handmade prints in her shed, inspired by her Scottish Gaelic heritage and by the culture and landscape of her new home country, the Netherlands.
Acair Books is a publisher working mainly in Scottish Gaelic
Your print is therefore one of a kind, and may vary slightly from that shown. If you would like to see your specific print before purchase, I would be happy to e-mail you an image.
I take great care to ensure that my prints will last for a long time. I use only acid-free paper, printed with eco-friendly but completely permanent Caligo relief ink, and coloured with permanent acrylic inks. Each original print is signed along with its limited edition number.
I package and send all prints with great care to ensure that they arrive in immaculate condition.
