‘Road Trip’ 2016

Linocut on paper
55cm x 75cm
Limited edition of 15


This composition is an imaginary one, created from a photograph taken inside a Kombi I used to own, and a photograph taken on a trip to Wilson’s Promontory. This leisurely road trip, cruising coastal roads could be anywhere, however.

I was commissioned to create an artwork for Home Of The Arts on the Gold Coast in 2018, and this image formed the starting point. The mural, currently installed in the café, is approximately 2.5m high and 6m wide. A personal and career highlight!

A block this size takes approximately 50-60 hours to draw and carve, and then another 4 hours or so to print the edition by hand – no press involved! 🙂

Some of this edition are then selectively hand coloured using artist’s water colour inks.
