The ButterFly - A3 Linocut And Watercolour - NEW!


This is an original linocut print

Printed using archival colourfast Caligo Safewash black linocut ink onto White A3 Cartridge paper

The print has then been individually hand painted with Winsor And Newton Watercolour Paint
This process is totally unique, and with different colours and effects used on EVERY print - not two will EVER be the same!

Not a numbered edition - an artists proof and signed, named and marked as such in pencil at the bottom of the print.

The magic of a linocut is that EVERY print is unique.
Each print takes some time to complete and each one taken from a linoct will be slightly different.
That is the fun!

It is so hard to capture the real magic of original prints in a photo and you will find that the real print looks SO much better.
The contrast and textures of the ink look fantastic in person but can't be captured in a photograph.

This is the very first print from what will eventually be a numbered edition.
Until I make the print and peel back the paper I don't know exactly what the print will look like..

I am a professional jeweller and also visual artist.

I have been creating art all my life, and I love what I do..

I work mainly in watercolour paint and linocut, and my work has sold all around the World.
As well as my own work I am also creating  CD cover artwork for several respected bands.

Every print will be sent double wrapped in blue tissue paper and in a sturdy cardboard postal tube - and complete with signed and security stamped certificate of authenticity.
Ready for framing straight from the tube.
