I made this little black & white dachshund lino print after meeting my friend’s beautiful natured little dachshund dogs. With their long noses and little legs they made great subjects.
Printed on Shiramine Select 110gsm paper (H) with an image size of approx 19cm(W) and 15cm(H), this is one of a small limited edition of 20 prints and has been numbered and signed on the back so that the mattboard window can sit right up to the paw. Unframed but comes with Black mattboard to complement the print.
Creating and carving linoprints has become an all-consuming artistic practice for Carolyn with her subject matter an eclectic mix of nature, animals, mythology and daily observations. She especially likes the bold graphic nature inherent in linocuts that lends itself to many applications. Carolyn enjoys every aspect of the process from pondering ideas, sketching and refining and transferring to lino. She loves the carving process using traditional tools and the mindfulness of the practice. She finds a magic that comes in the final stage of printing when the ideas and the lino’s characteristics form a collaboration. Sources of inspiration for her include: animals, nature, books, music, art, other eras and anything that peaks her curiosity. INSTAGRAM | WEBSITE
