A traditional Thames barge stands beached on the shore, surrounded by shelducks pottering around in this original linocut print. A typical Suffolk scene, it is inspired by the lovely area of Pin Mill, a favourite haunt of Swallows and Amazons author Arthur Ransome.

The print is hand pulled using oil based inks on archival paper. It uses 5 lino blocks.

Fiona has been creating things since she was a tiny girl when her grandmother would encourage her to draw elaborate chalk pictures on her kitchen floor. She went on to study Design and Applied Arts at Edinburgh College of Art, graduating in 1999. Here she combined her love of drawing and painting with three-dimensional disciplines such as furniture and ceramics. She now pursues this interest in both flat and more hands on work through lino printing, enjoying the different stages of drawing, gouging lino and inking up and printing which she does with her antique cast iron press. She is inspired by the simplicity of old seaside railway posters as well as the atmosphere created by costal artists such as Sir Kyffin Williams and printmaker Robert Gilmore. Her prints have a nostalgic feel with the clear lines, compositions and colours evoking memories of particular British coast lines.
