In order to reach a wider audience and to bring real art into the home, I have reproduced many of my drawings, lino cuts and photographs as greetings cards.
All cards are printed on gloss finished card stock with a blank interior for your own personalised message. All cards come with an envelope and are available in two sizes, large and medium.
Large cards are approximately 5.5" x 8.25" (14cm x 21cm). Medium cards are approximately 4.25" x 5.5" (11cm x 14cm).
Prices: large $6, and medium $4.50
Shipping $3.50 for single card, and $5.50 for up to 5 cards.
SAVE time and money! I can write a personalised message for you and send directly to the your requested recipient! Add $3 to cost of card.
Whilst I haven't been able to print for a number of years I have included these pictures of my lino cuts as they are very much part of my style and work.
A print from lino is built up in stages. I generally use 4 colours with one piece of lino (known as the reduction method). Each colour portrays a different part of the picture with the final stage 'bringing the image together'. Suddenly, from a sheet of various colours, you have a defined picture!
(I do have a few prints available for sale; please use the contact form if interested. Print size is 10" x 8")

I have been very fortunate to obtain an original Albion tabletop press made in London, UK.
It is made of cast iron and is therefore, incredibly heavy!
I like creating images with the computer, but using something as physical as a manual printing method has an entirely different appeal to it; I can only compare it to the reason why people use photographic film cameras, or have 'vintage' cars.
