welcome to my page here I am going to post my new drawing and prints that eventuate from the drawings as well as other stuff from the past years from when I was at art school and after I graduated in the mid 1990's.
Also I will post pictures and stuff from everyday life probably not very interesting to most people but hey I'm still going to add them anyway !
Anyway hope you enjoy you stay and feel free to say hi
ps. my blog name is actually my daughters name, sorry for confusing anyone it is just such a pretty name so I decided to use it here and everywhere else !!!
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
