Printmaking by hand



Over the past few weeks, I have been making some new prints. After hand-carving the 'linoleum' block, the block is inked and then the paper is pressed on by hand, rubbing with fingers or a printmaker's baren. ( I don't use a press)

These hand-pulled linocut block prints are now available in my Etsy shop.
