celtic print image

Celtica II

Practice design for cutting. Part of a simple celtic knotwork design with additions to get the balance between being too simple or too busy.

Ancient Fish I

Inspired by a visit to the Natural History Museum in London, lots of wonderful exhibitions to see but some terracotta tiles on one of the columns caught my eye as I was taking pictures for ideas and inspiration. I’d forgotten about the pictures and a couple of months later, when I was going back though pictures for ideas, these jumped out at me again.

rustica print

Rustica

The first reduction / multi-colour print I did. I am interested in illumination and stained glass, so was pleased to come up with a simple design that I could transfer to a lino print. The title came from the finished print, as I felt the ink layers dried giving a ‘rustic’ appearance.

image of a print of cow

Oh Dairy Me

A play on words for this title, as I live and work in a rural area there are lots of fields full of dairy cows and I felt the black and white colouring would lend itself to printing. This extended to purely positive and negative spaces. I intended to do a series of designs but have yet to return to this project.

image of a print of penguin

Happier Feet

After a trip to Dublin Zoo I had taken lots of pics for future ideas, again I was revisiting photo’s and had found several that I had taken of this penguin. Another simple almost geometric design which I felt was a little flat but picked up when I added additional colour by hand. This print was undertaken and completed at the Leicester Print Studio.
