Hidden Gem Prints


I'm a big fan of lino prints( including  artists such as Australian printmaker GW BOT ), liking the distinctive, varied marks made by the cuts depending on the degree of touch. I've even had a go myself .  So I'm happy to  bring the work of Fran Graham to your attention. I've known Fran and her husband Robin   for some years - they both worked at  Kew.  Fran is now working for the  Yorkshire Dales National Parks as an ecologist, and she's really brought that sense of place and knowledge of plants to her delightful prints. I've suggested they might look good on fabric ( well I would , wouldn't I!)

Definitely would look good on favbric and I'm also a lino/soft block carver. Thanks for sharing!

The dark-light alternation is really effective. And closely observed.
