This summer I paddled 50 kilometres up the Athabasca River in northern Alberta. Waterways have long been the natural highways of the north, providing relative ease of travel through the boreal forest. Their banks hold many tales, like this trapper's cabin.
This print was hand-pulled using water-soluble, environmentally responsible ink.
Athabasca Trapper is a limited edition print entirely made by hand.
What is a hand-pulled linocut print?
After making an initial drawing, I hand-carve a linoleum block. I then squeeze ink out onto my palette, roll it onto the block using a hard paint-roller tool, and then carefully press the paper down onto the block.
Each print is unique and there will be slight variations within the edition – that’s part of the charm of linocut printmaking. You can see the hand of the artist in every print.
Image size is 4” x 6”.
Mat included! Overall size is 8” x 10”.
Printed on acid-free paper using environmentally responsible soy-based ink.
Print will arrive at your door in a professionally cut, 8” x 10” mat, making it very easy to pop into a standard sized frame. Your print comes with a stiff backing mat as well, so you can display it straightaway, without a frame.
Your print will be mailed in a protective cellophane bag, with a sturdy cardboard insert, so it arrives in top condition.
