Local Linos

Local places captured in simple lino form. I have been taking local buildings, sights and views and translating them into simple linos. Here are just some of them and, of course, there are many more to capture yet.


Seeking Structure

A trip to the Palatine region of Germany inspired this print which is part of a series taking inspiration from a weather beaten castle on a small mount in the forest. The walls were worn and pitted reflecting inner thoughts and emotions.

Festive Jumper

This  simple lino cut is my Christmas card design – a warm red jumper with holly motif.  I love wool, woolly jumpers and knitting. As I have just resumed knitting a jumper which I started knitting over 6 years ago I was inspired to put a festive woolly on my Christmas card.

Sewing the Wind & Reaping the Whirlwind

Continuing my schoolboy morbid fascination with World War 2 and the horrors of mass bombing.  In the Lancaster bomber, trapped in a searchlight, seven airmen face mortal peril.  Down at ground level it’s no picnic either.  The city is ablaze and the population is fleeing.
