Original one colour linocut print on heavyweight Fabriano Rosaspina paper.

This print was created for the 2022 UK paperback special edition cover of 'Hamnet' by Maggie O'Farrell, depicting medicinal herbs and flowers that are used in healing, and by the protagonist Agnes. Fennel, rosemary, columbine and violets, all have been used for centuries in folklore medicine.

Image size: 15 x 25 cm.
Paper size: 25 x 35.5 cm.
Artist's Proof, signed.

A lover of the natural world, Cally's prints are inspired by nature and folklore. She is based in London, but is constantly drawn to the beauty of nature and its place within the world. She began producing etchings and collagraphs at art college, and came to linocut printmaking much later. She really fell in love with the process of linocut; something about the carved line as a way to translate her sketches, and to explore pattern and texture.

This work was shown at Atelier Beside the Sea as part of the Pots, Prints and Jewellery exhibition.
