Fifties Chickadee, prints available
I met Julia on twitter and was intrigued by her art. I had made simple block prints in school, but didn’t know a lot about it. I checked out Julia’s youtube tutorial videos showing how she makes her linocut prints. I thought I would pass them on to you. To see her start-to-finish printmaking drawing transfer, removing the drawing from the block, carving, and printing demo videos go to her YouTube Channel.
Go to Julia Forsyth’s website to see some of her unique work.
