    This hand made linocut print features one of my favourite birds the Beeeater. I was inspired to create this print so that I could capture the moment when I came across a colony of them in Menorca this summer. They were flying across the hot sandy farmland swooping to catch insects. Their beautiful bright plumage was shining in the sun. The print is made up of 5 individually cut lino blocks all hand pulled through a press.
