Inspired by travel, culture and lifestyle, Aileen Brown Linocut Prints demonstrate mastery of colour, composition and design, coupled with sensitivity and wit. This is particularly shown in her images of flowers, animals, people and places.
Aileen Brown Linocut Prints reaffirm the 1920’s practice of producing prints coloured from the block rather than hand coloured. This painstaking process has sometimes included as many as twelve different applications on each print with each needing to be situated exactly to ensure its perfect placement within the overall design.
Whilst being a prolific printmaker since the 1980’s, each Linocut Print is lovingly hand made, then signed and numbered by Aileen. More Aileen Brown Linocut prints are on show in our gallery.
