Shop Announcement:

Hello! Welcome to my Folksy Art Shop.

I am an artist based in the West Midlands, UK, focusing mostly on small format original linocut prints and acrylic paintings.

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.

Description

This is an original limited edition linocut print which I have pressed by hand using the back of a spoon. I have used a little coloured pencil between pressings to add extra colour.

It shows the famous archaeological site of Sutton Hoo, an ancient Anglo Saxon burial site famous for its ship burial.

This is print number 29 of an edition of 30 prints.

I have created 30 prints from this plate in a variety of colours and approaches. The edition begins as a black and white print and gradually introduces colour.

This artwork is printed in Schmincke Aqua Linoldruck Linoprint Ink (Water Based) and Luminance Coloured Pencil on Fabriano Accademia Paper (160gsm).

The print measures approx 6 x 4 inches and the paper has been hand cut to approx. A5 (landscape orientation).

The print will come unframed and unmounted.

I will post this print out to you in a board backed envelope. I will provide a small certificate of authenticity and wrap your print in cellophane and tissue paper for added protection while it is in the post.

The print will be mailed using 1st Class Royal Mail Standard Delivery and for items mailed outside the UK I will use Royal Mail's International Standard post which should take 3 to 5 working days within Europe and 5 to 7 working days everywhere else.

For multiple items I will charge full postage on the first item then 20p for each additional item mailed within the same envelope.

Thank you for your interest in my artwork!

Inspiration

The recent release of the film based on the novel The Dig reminded me of my visits to this fascinating place, so I have based this print on photographs I took while visiting back in 2003. This is not an exact recreation of the scene but combines several photographs and viewpoints to create this Sutton Hoo landscape.
