Hi I'm Joanne, welcome to Art by Joanne Spencer.
I create pictures using a technique called reduction Lino cut, using one block of Lino to print all the colours. As you print each colour you carve more of the Lino away reducing it's surface area.
There is something calming and therapeutic about carving a piece of Lino, inking it up and then printing it, there are so many variables, how you carve, how you put the ink on and the pressure applied to transfer the ink from the Lino to the paper, that until you have pulled the paper back you are never sure what your image is going to be like.
I work from my home studio at Corsham in Wiltshire and am a Resident Artist at The Corsham Gallery.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website.
