‘Tradescantia Propagation’ is a limited edition hand printed linocut artwork. Propagation refers to the process of taking cuttings from a plant and encouraging them to develop roots in order to grow a new plant. Tradescantia are considered a weed in some countries due to their hardiness in tropical and temperate climates. I love them, and always have at least 1 (or 5) in my home. This is part of a collection of propagation images created due to my fascination with the process.


This print has been created with hand mixed water based relief ink printed onto Somerset Satin 100% cotton, acid free 250gsm paper. This paper has a beautiful buttery soft finish and a deckle edge. The dimensions of the print are 18cm x 13cm.


Each image is hand printed at home and is therefore completely original. The charm of this technique is the individuality that it produces in texture and colour and will always be limited to a small print run.
