Please note that in situ images are purely an indication of how a piece may look.

This print features a selection of wayside Spring flowers, primroses, winter aconites, field woundwort and butterbur, all found out and about whilst walking in Norfolk. The wagtail was hopping along beside us as we ventured across the muddy fields.
This print is a linocut over a hand painted screen print. It is one of a variable edition due to the hand painted nature of the background. Therefore each one is unique.
This is number 7 of a variable edition of 30.
