Hello! Welcome to my Folksy Art Shop.
I am a UK based artist living in the West Midlands where I produce the original linocut prints and paintings. My work is inspired by all the lovely places I have travelled to and collected photo's and memories of over the years. Nature and landscape are 2 of my biggest inspirations.
I graduated from Birmingham Polytechnic in Graphic Design back in 1988 and have practised my art ever since. For a number of years I specialised in pen and ink drawings but over the past few years I have explored other media, and I'm always open to trying new materials and art forms.

Thank you so much for your interest in my art.
This original hand pressed linocut print is a homage to some of the tools I use when I make my linocut prints.
This is print number 1 of an edition of 3 prints. It has been created in a single colour from one plate in a single pressing.
In addition to this print I have created an edition of 13 prints created in a variety of colourways, as well as two smaller editions of the design. Most of the prints have an image of the 'artist' in the back of the spoon. However this print, plus one other small edition, has been created without the face in the spoon.
There will be 26 original prints in total. Other than these 26 prints there will be no further original prints made from this linoplate.
The print is a square 6 inches x 6 inches. The paper is approx. 8 inches x 9 inches.
This artwork is printed in Schmincke Aqua Linoldruck Linoprint Ink (Water Based) on Strathmore Printmaking Paper (120gsm).
The print will come unframed and unmounted.
It will be packaged in a cellophane packet and wrapped in tissue.
I will send the print out to you via 1st class Royal Mail Standard Delivery or Standard International Delivery if sending overseas. I charge full postage for the highest priced item, then 20p for each other item mailed within the same envelope.
I usually pop a piece of card inside the envelope for added protection, this is cut down from recycled sources.
If you have any questions please ask me.
Thank you for looking!
I have altered the design of this print slightly to provide a little movement to the puddle of ink that the tools are lying on. In the colour version of the print the ink pool is a single area of colour but I thought that would be too monotonous for this print as it is such a large area. I wanted to create a lively image with some movement in it, to suggest the energy that comes into play when these tools are used.
