Lady Gardener (Lokta paper) - Little Original Linocut
'Lady Gardener ' is from my range of 'Little Original Artworks' that will fit in an A5 photo frame or can be float mounted in a larger frame.
I do what I can with the vegetable garden but heavy clay and living near the top of a mountain make things difficult. This year I'm going to build some raised beds with covers to extend the growing season.
The Lokta paper provides a wonderful texture, This acid free paper is one of the finest hand made papers in the world and provides an important source of income for rural communities in Nepal. It has a low environmental impact as the plant used for the paper pulp regrows from the same root system. It is dried outside and 'kissed' by the Himalayan sun.
I create a number of versions from each lino plate but each one is a little bit different as they are all done by hand and the paper also has variations due to the way it is made.
- These little original artworks make lovely gifts.
- Approx paper size is 210 x 150 mm
