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

Had my little meeting today with Erin at Gallery71 in Hobart this morning, it all went very well she loved my work and said that she would love to have some of my prints around their shop and would like me to take part in a group show in their downstairs gallery in the near future.
Erin picked out two prints then more eventually when I can afford to get more framed she chose the chook and the garlic one.
Picture framing is terribly expensive luckily my framer agreed to let me have an account with them so I could get the prints framed and hung at the gallery/eco haven shop quick smart !! People are being so nice to me lately, I am definaltly not knockin it !!!
Another plus today was i mentioned to Erin that Allan was a composer and was writing more music for a new cd and that he already has one out of medative piano music and she suggested he bring a couple in to sell in the shop,so today turn out to be pretty good for both allan and !
