I began to create lino prints to fill out my body of work after finishing my sculpture.

The prints were inspired by the black and white drawings i created with tipex. The first lino i created (seen below) worked well, but did nor give the overwhelming effect like previous sketches. This was due to the lack of lines that i cut and because i only cut 3 lines, the print seemed to look more like a “logo” rather than a representation of a murmuration. This was due to the fact that the lino cutter i was using was not thin enough. So i created a tool that could cut the fine lines that i was trying to achieve.

The image seen below is the original print, after adding the thinner lines.




After creating the last print (seen above) i began playing with compositions on paper and decided to create work with the prints based off the patterns and rules of the natural system.
