‘Muzzle Nuzzle’ open edition relief print now available

If you love the feel of a warm velvety nose in your hand, or you know someone who does, I have the perfect print for you!

I've just listed an open edition of a new print inspired by exactly that moment, called ‘Muzzle Nuzzle’ which is now availablefor £25 + £5 (p+p).

These are original handmade prints, but the thing about open edition prints is I can print as many as I need, so they are more affordable than limited edition prints whose prices are driven upwards by the fact there will only ever be x in the edition.

Do I ever use colour?

A very small pastel painting of bluebells carpeting the ground beneath three copper beech trees sporting their dark red new leaves. In the back ground are flowering shrubs and trees.

‘Bluebells, Coles’
2.5 x 3.5in (ACEO size)
Soft pastel on UArt paper

The weather is cold and grey today but it won’t be long before the bluebells are carpeting the beech woods with wave after floral wave of delicately scented colour.

This is a teeny, tiny pastel painting I did on UArt paper with the most delicious soft pastel set made by Sennelier.

You thought there was no colour in my art, right?!

Well, part of the joy of linocutting my way is the challenge of representing a world filled with colour and tone using just one colour and making a variety of marks to suggest tone.

When colour is removed the viewer focuses on the textures, shapes and subject matter instead.
