‘Sunflower’ is a monoprint made by printing from patchwork fabric.

This flower is made using traditional patchwork hand-sewing techniques. I cut out a paper shape for each petal, and wrapped it in offcuts of cotton fabric. I sewed the petals together into a flower. Then I covered the flower with oil-based ink and rammed it through a heavy printing press.

Oil-based printing ink on Fabriano paper.

This listing is for one from a series of eight monoprints. Unframed, unmounted. There are variations in positioning – this is a normal feature of handmade printmaking.

Postage & packaging is included in the sale price. I wrap each monoprint in acid-free tissue paper and package it flat in cardboard.

Please note I can currently only accept sales from and delivery to the UK.

I price my work fairly. I work out the price for each handmade print I sell by adding the number of hours of my skilled time + studio costs + materials costs, divided by the number of units produced in that series of prints. This results in realistic prices for original artwork. I like knowing that I could afford to buy my own work, not pricing it only for billionaires to buy.

I see art and craft as a necessity as well as a luxury. For this reason, in 2023 I am donating 20% of my income from art and craft sales to charity. My chosen charity for 2023 is Meadow Well Connected.
