Description

The idea for the Laundry Peg Cat Art tea towel  came from my cat Peg who is very partial to a washing basket, full or empty!  I transferred my sketch to rubber blocks which I then carved out using Lino cutting tools. I then rolled ink over them and hand pressed onto the tea towels which are a linen/cotton blend. No 2 tea towels are exactly the same and each has the mark of a handmade block 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
