Sea Urchin Lino Print ( in Green)

Now looking at the considerable number of birds that feature in my work it might appear that I am a bit of a twitcher but actually the sea and its contents are my greatest inspirations. I am no Jacques Cousteau but I find it very satisfying to dive down deeper than I am tall to reach some small glimmering mystery from the bottom of the sea. At depth green sea urchin skeletons look like great globes of verdigris-encrusted copper impaled on the dark purple spines of their children and their children’s children. The water is a deceptive lens though and they are always smaller in air than they appear in water.

This is my latest print, a 3-colour lino print in shades of green printed with oil-based but water-washable inks onto 280g Hahnemuehle Etching Paper. It will shortly be available to purchase through my Folksy Shop. Is now available click here!


  1. Hello!! Newbie to your blog, Kxx

  2. new to your blog too :) I really love your prints and very impressed by them! I've only dabbled a little with prints at college so far but my lino definitely isn't up to scratch yet, finding the block printing inks come off extremely patchy looking no matter what I do.

  3. I'm new too! I love these sea urchin prints, the colours are gorgeous. x
