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 ~

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 😉
