Welcome to Ruby Victoria Letterpress & printmaking
Here you will find photos of all my original hand carved linocut prints and letterpress printing.
A commercial printer by trade a printmaker by choice.
I specialize in original handcarved lino block prints with a bit of letterpress thrown in for good measure.
All printed on antique printing machines with that unmistakable bite into the paper that you can only get with letterpress printing
The work that I do is not created on a computer everything is hand drawn then hand carved out of lino then printed one impression at a time on my tabletop letterpress machine
I do not use polymer which limits me somewhat in regards to type but I love to use traditional methods in my printing that involve handset type and hand carved designs and I think this is what make my work totally Original and Unique to what other people are doing right now and it also meaning everything I make is an original work of art
I love what I do and love to share it with others that are interested

I guess these prints have eventuate from living with a chef, I had never eaten artichokes before meeting Allan, he comes from an Italian family and his mother would cook carciofies for her family all the time stuffed with chopped garlic and parsley cooked in a tomato bases sauce, I love nonna!!
We also drive around the Huon valley every Saturday doing Piano lessons and all the students have wonderful gardens and get given alot of fresh produce to take home and cook, but i end up drawing them first if i get the chance
