Welcome to Linocuttycuts

​​Women in their many forms are the subject and inspiration for this collection.

Many years of life drawing, sketching and painting have produced a mass of studies that have at last been put to work to produce a true and definitive set of editions.

And here's how!

  1. Make a series of sketches (fail a few times) of life models in various poses.
  2. Take these life sketches and re-work (fail a few times) into a single natty lino-friendly design
  3. Transfer design to lino ( a LOT of failure here).
  4. Try to cut and carve design, pull hair out, mess it up and start again.
  5. Finally. A finished carved design.
  6. Hand-press into some lovely paper (waste a lot of it first by messing up)
