These enticing linocut prints are the works of UK-based artist, Giuliana Lazzerini. The Italian artist was greatly influenced by the time spent in her fatherâ€™s mosaic studio in Italy where: â€œThe Tuscan landscape and her childhood memories bear a strong influence on Giulianaâ€™s work and her use of colour plays an important role in conveying emotion in all her subjects.â€ You can view more of her work including her paintings on her website and some of her prints are available here in her Etsy shop, The Bluebird Gallery. She writes this about her linocut process:
â€œI carve my linocuts and woodcuts by hand and ink them, then individually print them myself on a hand operated machine (printing press) and sometimes burnishing them by hand. This process is repeated for every colour as prints are made of 3/4 plates.â€
