Cat with Plants
Lino Print on Somerset paper
12cm x 30cm
This is part of a series of prints I made during the Covid-19 Lockdown. I was limited in terms of where I could go and what I could do, so I decided to convert a small craft press die cutting machine into a small printing press. I experimented with lino cuts and made prints of subjects that were very close to home.
I had recently filled two sketchbooks with drawings of my cat, Sunny, and I felt that his graphic black silhouette would make a good subject for a print. I have lots of patterned cushions and plants in my house, so made a series of prints where I played with colour and pattern.
