Amelia Hemmings Printmaker - Printmaking

Amelia Hemmings Printmaker

“I am a Lino and Letterpress print maker - I print multi-colour prints.”

I am a printmaker and I also teach Art and printmaking at a school.

My method is carving into a Lino block using my very sharp Pfeil tools! I print up to A3 as that is the bed size for my wonderful etching Gunning Press No.1.

My Lino prints are hand cut and designed by me and are mostly multi-colour using the colour reduction method. The inks I use for the lino printing are oil based and washable Relief links, which are non-toxic.

I also love to use my letterpress, an Adana 8 x 5 . I have metal and wood type and I also use my etching press. The inks I use for the type are oil based letterpress inks. The letter art is great for cards and personalised pieces.

I can print up to A3, mostly paper sizes A5, A4 and A3. I print on wonderful print paper such as: Somerset, Zerkall and Hosho print papers.

All my prints may vary slightly as they are all handprinted. Each print has my signature, title, date and number.
If posted they will be flat or rolled (depending on the size) and will have sturdy cardboard supporting them.

Print making is my passion, I absolutely love it! The process of printmaking is exciting and I find it very relaxing.

If you have an idea or youd like to request a print, or commission a series, please contact me.

I am currently doing to print series commissions, they are all landscapes and still life subjects relating to the landscape.

Thank you very much :-)
