I simply had to share these wonderful images by Linoprint artist Anna Curtis.
As Anna says…
“The unique beauty of the Australian native bush and all its elements is wondrous.”
“I like to capture the essence of flowers, fruits, leaves and trunks through close observation of their intricacy, patterns and colors. With the addition of bushfire, devastation and regeneration, the images culminate in a feast of color and movement.”
Anna specialises in the art of reduction linoprinting. It requires a single linoblock, which is progressively carved away between the printing of each colour to create these amazing multicolored images.
To watch this remarkable lino-print process appear before your eyes as each colour is applied in a time lapse sequence for the linoprint: “Nature’s Garden – Bold Banksia”, click the image below ~
Anna’s work can be found in numerous galleries across Australia ~

And if you’re lucky enough to be in Port Douglas, north Queensland on a Sunday morning, you’ll invariably find Anna Curtis in the market there 😉
Thanks for sharing these beautiful Linoprints Linda. They are just gorgeous and they would make a wonderful gift, especially for an overseas visitor. I might have to keep these in mind!

Really beautiful Linda! I love how artists all have such a distinct vision — these painting-within-a-painting is so unique.

I love print making at the best of times, but I love Anna’s use of colours, her design and of course her choice of subject matter!
