'Striding Edge, Helvellyn',
Lake District –
Original Linocut Print
The inspiration for this print came from a week walking and camping at Ullswater in the Lake District.
I’m building my confidence in walking in the fells on my own. I sat by Red Tarn, at the base of Helvellyn, watching the hikers walk along Striding Edge. That was way out of my comfort zone. Although not part of my plan, I did eventually pluck up the courage to climb up Swirral Edge. Thank you to everyone I chatted to and spurred me on that day!
A 4-colour multi-block print which is hand-printed using oil-based inks. The layering of colours creates additional tones.

This adds to their individuality by making each print unique.
