  • Linocut printing is a handmade process and variation in colour and detail will occur. This adds to their individuality by making each print unique.

  • Original prints are scanned and digitised or photographed. I do my utmost to ensure these reflect the colours in the original print. While every effort has been made to show items accurately on our website, slight variations in colour may occur. There may be variations in colours depending on the calibration and settings of individual computer screens.  


All measurements quoted are approximate.



In-person workshops are held in my York studio.
