We have just framed this absolutely charming and beautiful lino cut by artist and printmaker Kat Flint.
Our customer had a number of pictures framed at the same time, and although they were all very nice, this one stood out for me.
We kept things nice and simple as is our way) to just set off the image and let the artwork do the talking, rather than a loud or over dominant frame.
The distressed frame was in a colour sympathetic to, and the very thin inner mount matched the colour of the ink used for the print and the off white mount matches the paper colour with just the bevel on the acid free mount showing as bright white.
Perfect, and our customer was delighted when she collected yesterday!
Details on the print are:
Materials: Zerkall 145 gsm soft white paper, Cailgo safewash inks.
Dimensions: Height: 170mm Centimetres; Width: 170mm
The artist writes on the internet: “I was raised in the North East of Scotland, and this little salmon-loving lady is my tribute to the land of my childhood with its cold winds, warm knitted jumpers and rugged coastal fishing villages.
I’ve given the traditional Scottish idea of the ‘fish wife’ my own illustrative spin – part wistful, part mysterious, she’s gazing off to sea and dreaming of things that lurk beneath the waves…
Perfect for day dreamers, adventurers, sea-gazers and fans of Fair Isle knits!”
