I'm Catherine an Artist based in Liverpool. This is a hand printed linocut design. I am very much inspired by natural plant forms and use Matisse collage techniques as an inspiration. Each design is completely different due to the playful way in which I combine the colours and adapt my lino plate composition each time I print. The standard A4 size is easy to frame at home if you choose.
The reverse side has my makers stamp, a signature with date and a small label 'About the Artist'
To begin, I have used gel plate (monotype) printing technique to prepare a coloured/distressed base onto natural LOKTA paper from Nepal - made from bark of the Daphne Bush. Once this unique base is dry I have overprinted with Cranfield printing inks and a linocut plate to produce the botanical design.
To finish, I have mounted the paper (which is only 80g) onto a grey mount card base using industrial quality 3M double tape. You can frame the print or hang it casually using an oversize bulldog clip. All paints and printing inks are professional artist quality.
The A4 size print, mounted on board, carefully wrapped in a DO NOT BEND pack. Happy to include hand written personal gift messages.
