About the piece ...

This linocut was inspired by Pablo Neruda’s poem 'Every Day You Play'. He has been a longtime inspiration to me through life, love and loss. In this poem he writes about wanting to do "what spring does with the cherry trees". I have always loved the image of blossoms and equate them with the beauty of a woman’s joy. A linocut is created by carving an image into linoleum. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller and then impressed onto paper. Multiple prints can be then made of the same image. Each print in the edition will be slightly different as the artist will never apply exactly the same amount of ink and pressure to each print in the run.
