This morning we got a knock at the door and it was the postie with a package from Taree, Ruby was very excited to see another lot of golden books which she spread out all over the bed, there was also a little something very special for me, Ruby wasn't going to be getting her little mitts on this an original Mr Shepherd painting I almost squealed with delight!
Isn't she lovely
Thank you so much Naomie for being such a lovely friend, I hope we will get to meet at Christmas time when we all make the trip up to Sydney at the end of the year
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
