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. I do linocut art around my day job and everyday life, snatching little pockets of time to print when I can. Printing isn’t a full timeContinue reading “A Lesson with a Green Woodpecker”

My favourite paper

I occasionally get asked about the materials I use for my handprinted reduction prints. My favourite paper is Zerkall, made near the Rur River in Cologne, Germany. It’s heavy enough to take quite a few layers of colour and has a lovely delicate grain that gives my prints a dreamy vintage style that people tendContinue reading “My favourite paper”

Usually, I would never do a commission for a linocut, but I made an exception, especially for her. She’s had a badContinue reading “Happy Hens”
