This is a 12-color reduction linocut of an elephant. The print comes unmounted, titled, and signed.
In most of my pieces I like to focus really close up to the subject to emphasize texture. In relief printmaking this is achieved by carving many successive, intricate layers in the linoleum, printing each color one at a time. It's a very painstaking process, but the results can be quite impressive.
Hey folks! Thanks for checking out my art. And stuff. As you may have deduced, I'm Nicole. I recently earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in printmaking, and am now desperately trying to prove to my parents that the last 5 years have not been a total waste.
Most of my work is nature based. I have always had a great passion for animals, and in fact almost became a veterinarian. Then I realized that an art major spent far less time in the lab and writing research papers, so that decision wasn't hard to make.
Anyway, please enjoy my work, and feel free to comment, criticize, and ask me any questions!
