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

Life is getting busier

wow life is just getting so busy, just don't seem to have time to do anything much for too long , between ruby and house work and other stuff I have been going to painting class and trying to get homework done not as easy as I had first imagined but I am getting there and loving it.
got a really cool retro lamp today from the op shop had never seen anything like it before and I just fell in love with it, I am going to start giving stuff away out of the house so i can fit all my opshop finds lol then I wont feel so guilty about bringing stuff home !
