Wiltshire Horn Ram
Limited Edition Print
Edition of 30
Image Size: H 15cm x W 20cm
Mount Size: H 25cm x W 29cm
Wiltshire Horn Ram is, as the name suggests a Wiltshire breed of sheep. The Rams have amazing curly horns. I was fascinated by the shapes and textures of the wool and the horns. Lino really lends itself to these and is very satisfying to cut. This print is printed as an edition of 30 on cream paper and is unframed.
Rosemary Farrer is an artist printmaker who trained in Fine Art at Camberwell School of Art and the Ruskin School of Drawing. She uses various techniques including etching, aquatint, lino and woodblocks and enjoys using the special qualities of these different methods, whether it be the graphic, dynamic marks of a linocut, or the subtle tones and textures achievable in an aquatint. Her woodblock print ‘Track’ was exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition this year and sold out at the Private View.

Rosemary Farrer, artists and printmaker sells with us online and in our art gallery in Stow-on-the-Wold. Rosemary paints in oils and also makes original prints. The prints are in no way copies of the paintings, they are conceived of, and made, as a response to the special and wonderful effects that can be achieved only through the various techniques of printmaking, whether it be the graphic, dynamic marks of a linocut, or the subtle tones and textures achievable in aquatint and etching.
Design, composition and the use of colour are what excite her. She spends a lot of time drawing and painting outside, back in the studio, she will distil these ideas into strong graphic woodcuts, and linos or subtly textured etchings. Recent monotypes draw together the threads of her different media, with their graphic shapes and rich painterly colours.
She studied fine art at Camberwell School of Art and The Ruskin School of Drawing, and learned printmaking at Morley College [London]. She has exhibited prints and paintings at many galleries both in Britain and Europe, as well as, several times, at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
