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

Just because I can

Ruby adores anything creative , justput paper and paint infront of her and she is happy,
she usually paints or draws when I am printing

Ruby Has grown so much in the past couple of months it has been an amazing journey watching her learn all the little things that most of us take for granted and seeing the pure joy on her face when she achieves something !

wearing her Gobbles(Goggles) and pretending to be a frog, cats are also high on the list
of animals to pretend to be at any given time.

I thought I would post some photos of our Ruby doing some of her favourite things just because I can really

Cooking with Daddy

Her most favourite thing to do at the moment is cooking with Daddy and I think Allan love that she has an interest in cooking and is trying to instill a passion for food that he has in Ruby,
What a wonderful Daddy he is.
