Shop Announcement:

Hello! Welcome to my Folksy Shop.

I am an artist based in the West Midlands, UK, focusing mostly on small scale linocut prints and acrylic paintings working in my home studio.

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 been exploring other media, and I'm always open to trying new materials and art forms.

Finally despite Coronavirus my shop is open and I am still posting out orders to customers both in the UK and overseas within my usual timescales. However please be aware that there may be delays in the postal system due to the virus.

Thank you for your interest in my art.

Stay safe!

Description

This is an original hand pressed linocut print to which I have given a wash of watercolour ink.

It shows the pretty white flower of the winter - Snowdrops (Galanthus). It is based on photographs I took at a garden during February.

I pressed this print at home using the back of a spoon and my hand.

This is the 2nd in an edition of 2 prints. This print was created during the final stage of a reduction print which I have made as an edition of 9. In total there are 11 original prints of this design. There will be no other original prints made from this plate, which was destroyed during the printing process.

This artwork is printed in Schmincke Aqua Linoldruck Linoprint Ink (Water Based) on Fabriano Artists Paper 160 gsm. I have hand coloured the print with a wash of Dr Ph. Martin's India Ink and Daler-Rowney FW Acrylic Ink.

The print measures approx 6 x 2 inches and the paper has been hand cut to approx A5 size.

It will come unframed and unmounted.

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.

If you have any questions please ask me.

Thank you for looking at my artwork.

Inspiration

Usually towards the end of January I begin planning visits to snowdrop gardens, there are some lovely private gardens that specialise in the many varieties of this flower. To stand surrounded by a blanket of these pretty but tough winter flowers is a real joy.
