This is a lino cut print of a coastal wind swept Australian tea tree. Inspired by Japanese woodblock prints.
I really love just working with line, texture and tone. Printmaking is a very methodical way of working, as it takes many hours to design and then hand carve the wood block prior to printing. The printing of the wood block is another art in itself, each print is unique and has a certain character.
My main influences include the Australian printmakers: Margret Preston, Barbara Hanrahan and Jan Senbergs.
Paper: Arches BFK Reeves warm white. 300 gsm rag paper.
These prints are printed by hand so there will be slight variations with each print.
