An original limited edition multi-block linoprint. This print celebrates the amazing lifespan of the world's longest living mammal. Once I have designed the image, I transfer it to lino, which I then hand-carve. I print the linoprint in my studio, using a roller press. As each print is individually printed, there may be slight variations in tone and colour. This print is made using three separate linoblocks, which are each individually inked and printed in different colours. Here I have used sky blue, sea green and petrol blue oil-based inks. Each print has the title, edition number and my signature hand-written in pencil beneath the image. This edition is limited to 50 prints.

Kate Willows, printmaker, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. Kate Willows began printmaking 15 years ago, initially working with etching and drypoint. Exploring printmaking methods that could be carried out safely in her home studio, Kate eventually settled on linoprinting as the best method for her style of printmaking. Kate creates original, colourful and playful linocut prints, which often reflect her quirky sense of humour. She is especially interested in the use of colour and how this can be used to create vibrant and bold prints. Influences include Antonio Frasconi, Eric Ravilious, Robert Tavener, Edward Bawden and Kathleen Hale. To discuss any of Kate Willows' works for sale please call 07799535765 or email
