SKETCH FOR “THRIFT” PRINT

SKETCH FOR “THRIFT” PRINT

DRAWING is a big part of the creative process. Each design is carefully thought out and planned. Usually the result of several drawings of the same subject.

This current body of work is an ongoing project where inspiration is taken from plant, place and memory. Influenced by  drawn line, pattern and shape these ideas are then translated onto a block of lino.


CARVING the block takes time and patience. Sometimes a few blocks will be carved for one print. Other prints have been made by the reduction method.
