A Lesson with a Green Woodpecker

This is my first finished reduction print of 2023. I printed the first peachy coloured layer on Christmas Eve 2022. It’s taken me many weeks to complete the print.

New for 2023: A Newsletter

My newsletter will be more informative than just an ordinary marketing email. I’m going to write articles about artists IContinue reading “New for 2023: A Newsletter”

Fundraiser Reduction Print

I made a two colour reduction linocut to sell as a fundraiser for the Red Cross Ukraine crisis appeal. I have sold out now, but the money that was donated came to £410. A print was given to anyone who gave money to charity. My target was £300, but people were very generous. Thank youContinue reading “Fundraiser Reduction Print”
