I Love You Marmite - Reduction Lino Print
Marmite ‘I Love You’ Scarlet
My art has been inspired over the years from household objects around me every day, my husband’s love of Bovril to Apple and Pears in the fruit bowl at home. I am passionate about creating art which is entirely unique for me.
My early studies were in textiles and I specialised in paper, in particular the cutting and folding of all kinds of wonderful paper into three- dimensional pieces of art.
Whilst studying at Art College, I developed a love of printmaking and developed the linocut process further. Reduction Lino involves sequentially cutting away areas of the lino, looking at the positive and negative space, ink is then applied to the uncut surface and then printed onto the paper, this process is then repeated several times to apply layers of colour on top of each other.
