Process/inspiration: Rockets is a print made from a hand carved linoleum called a linocut. This linocut is hand carved by me, Mary, and hand printed on 140lb acid free paper with permanent oil based ink. This print was inspired by David Bowie’s songs.
Paper size is 11 x 14 inches. Ready to Frame.
Handmade: In order to achieve the beautiful print I first need to draw the image onto a sheet of linoleum or a wood block. Then I carve away parts of the linoleum in order to leave a negative image of the print. Ink is then rolled onto the surface of the linoleum and paper is applied with pressure using a small kitchen spoon or an etching press. In result, there is a slightly imprinted print on the paper.
The paper used is Acid free and all prints are printed with permanent Ink.

Note: All prints will have a slight variation because I hand pull all my prints and there may be slight differences than the photo pictured. This difference showcases that the prints are original works of art.
Each Print is sold separately and does not include the original linoleum block pictured (it is simply shown to demonstrate the process when making the print).
As the artist I sign all my prints in pencil under the image.
All Original Art is designed, hand carved, and hand printed by the Artist.
