This print was created as a commission for the Norfolk Broads Authority to feature on the cover of their 2022 Guide. I was asked to create a print that showcases the rare species that are indigenous to the Norfolk Broads. The print features the flowers Hemp Agrimony, Yellow Pond Lily, Branched Burr Reed and Milk Parsley. The caterpillar of the Swallowtail Butterfly can be seen on the Milk Parsley and the Norfolk Hawker dragonfly is perched on the reed. A garden Tiger moth is in flight and a Red Admiral butterfly is feeding on the pink flowers of the Hemp Agrimony. A Great crested Grebe can be seen in the water. A Linocut Print is a relief printing technique where linoleum is cut, inked and rolled to create an inverse relief print, generating the image as seen. This print is made from multiple lino tiles and is printed by hand in my studio in Hertfordshire.

Kate Heiss is a textile designer and print-maker who has worked with a wide range of fashion brands including Fenchurch, Miss Selfridge and the Japanese fashion designer Michiko Koshino. Then in 2011 Kate set up her own printmaking studio. Her approach to design and printmaking stems from a love of florals, geometric patterns and bold colours often found in textiles. Much of her inspiration comes from the natural landscapes of East Anglia. Working in a variety of techniques to create her distinctive style, she describes her style as “Vibrant, illustrative and quirky.”
