'Tattoo Man - Blue & Grey'

I'm very excited to share some pictures of this artwork! "Tattoo Man - Blue & Grey' is a collaboration artwork made with my husband Chris Nix (@chris_j_nix ) This was a birthday gift for a dear friend's 30th birthday present, which ended up being 2 years and 3 months late, whoops! Luckily, he likes the artwork and all is forgiven!

Artist Book Course

I attended an artist book making course today at the Silk Cut Workshop in Highett, Melbourne. Here are some pictures of my book in the making. I had 5 lino blocks of different geometric patterns. It is still wet, but will be folded back together tomorrow. I loved today and loved the time to 'play' with printing different layers together and working with 'ghost prints'!

'Black & Grey Brogues'

Brogues (Black & Grey)’ is a limited edition, hand made, original lino relief print.

I love Brogues and have many pairs of the shoes myself.  I love their patterns and their androgynous style. I find myself drawn to the intricate detail time and time again.

This is a limited edition of 10 prints in black and dark grey inks. Each print has the edition number (ie 1/10), the title and my signature.

Paper size is approximately 34.5 x 49.5cm, and the printed image is approximately 20 x 30cm.

This artwork is printed on high quality white Fabriano Rosapina paper (60% cotton rag content), and is printed with professional water based Graphic Chemical Company inks.

This is a ‘multi block’ lino print; a technique where more than one lino block is used to create a final artwork. In this artwork two separate lino blocks of identical size were used to create the final image. The first layer of ink printed is the background grey colour. On top of the grey layer the final layer of the brogue shoes printed in black ink. Due to this printing technique, slight variations on the alignment sometimes occur, which add to the beauty of this process in my opinion.

I created the original drawing by hand then the print was created by carefully hand carving the design onto the surface of the lino blocks. After the carving is complete, I hand mix and roll the ink onto the surface of the lino block. Using my printing press in my studio at home, prints are made by placing the printmaking paper on top of the inked lino block and this ‘sandwich’ is hand pulled through the press to create the print.
