AND THE FINE ART PRINT: There's something really wonderful about an artwork reproducing itself! These are limited edition prints of my botanical ink drawings printed on paper that is a lovely crisp white, Australian made with Eco-conscious accreditation in the manufacture. The printing method is Vercotype, a vintage technique that is carefully done by hand, producing a deliciously rich, embossed like surface using plant based archival inks. Printed in limited editions, the prints are all signed and numbered by me. Once printed, I add the Dutch gold-leaf [a mix of real earth metals] using a traditional hand gilding technique, just to give them that extra something and special glow.I love each one and send it to you with a blessing. Enjoy! xx
