The Linocut Printing Process
The prints available on this website are not reproductions but are original prints printed with linoleum blocks by the process of reduction. I print and carve the blocks myself..The edition sizes are small.usually 60 or less,. No more will ever be made of that image. After a color is printed, the block is cut away. What is carved away will be the color I just printed. The block is then printed darker and carved again. When I am finished all that is left on the block is the area of the final color.I cannot go back to change colors or to make more prints.
I use oil based inks for their archival qualities and print on Fabriano or Arches papers. The prints sold on this site will be matted with an acid-free white mat and an acid-free foam core backing,and are ready to frame.
My subjects are rooted in myth , everyday wonders and the interconnectedness of all beings.Xena, my Belgian Sheepdog and my Collie-mix Bindi often work their way into my work as they are constant imspirations.I have my own story for each picture but you might like to make up your own.
