Original Prints

Original prints - variable edition woodcut - Edge of Salt Marsh 3

As a general rule, original prints are printed by the artist while reproduction type prints are made by machine.

Original printing is a fun process and can be very spontaneous. There are many types of original prints from linocuts, etchings and screen prints to the humble potato print. The possible variations of hand printing are endless and often surprising, so it is a fascinating process.

 

Original prints – woodcuts

I love creating woodcuts. It is a similar process to linocuts but using wood instead of lino. I like the feel and texture of wood and the results that produces; you never know exactly what you are going to get!

Original prints - variable edition woodcuts

Variable edition hand-printed woodcuts – each one is unique.

 

Giclées are great prints but not originals

Because giclées are digital prints that are printed on an inkjet printer, each one is identical. So whether I have 10 or 10,000 printed they will all be exact copies. That makes giclée prints the perfect way to reproduce a painting, time and time again. Please click on giclée to find out more.
