Feathers & Florals


I have always been fascinated with birds and their gorgeous patterns and colors. Nature truly is an inspiration! I really love the linocut, block printing style with its timelessness and texture, and simple shapes and I would like to explore creating a pattern with this technique in mind with the motifs of birds, feathers, eggs, florals, leaves which are all intertwined.



Some sketches in progress of the feathers and birds component though I think they are a bit too detailed, with a bit of berries and willow snuck in there. I will try to simplify them. Sketching more flowers next. Trying to juggle work, kids and time to create! If anyone has tips on juggling and scheduling I would love love love your advise!
