Crow – Forgotten Names
An original two block linocut print. With this print I wanted to explore the language and the old words around crows. The forgotten words of old dialects and regional nicknames are fascinating and used often about birds. This print was exhibited at The Sussex Contemporary Exhibition 2022.
Lamb House/Mallards, Rye
This is an original linocut print from my Exhibition at The National Trust property Lamb House in Rye in 2022. The linocut prints feature the houses of Rye which were immortalised by the author E F Benson in his Mapp and Lucia books. Lamb House, which is now a beautiful National Trust property, was “Mallards” in the books and this was where Mapp and later Lucia lived.
Parrot at the Bookshop
An original hand printed, hand burnished linocut print. This is Archie the parrot who works in the wonderful Camilla’s Bookshop in Eastbourne. Choose from a Black & White or a Colour print.
Oystercatcher at Rye Harbour
An original hand printed, hand burnished linocut print showing an Oystercatcher above the famous red roofed hut at Rye Harbour. This is one of a Limited Print Run of 100 prints. Each print is numbered, titled and signed. In addition 5% of the purchase price will be donated to The Sussex Wildlife Trust.
Jackdaw at Cafe
The Holywell Cafe sits below the chalk cliffs at the Meads end of Eastbourne and looks out over the sea. The trees house a large colony of clever Jackdaws who make fine company when enjoying a cup of tea at the cafe!
Rook with Key
In this corvid inspired artwork I have used gold ink to add highlights to the key which the rook is carrying.
I was inspired by the local friendly rooks which have become quite tame. Their regal bearing has a mysterious fairytail feel making it easy to see how they appear so often in folklore and mythology.amandacardosoprintmaker.com
