Mini Prints of Iconic Northumberland

NORTHUMBERLAND LANDSCAPE MINI PRINT COLLECTION

My Northumberland landscape mini pint collection is based on Hadrian’s Wall, the castles and the coastline that sit on the Whin Sill – a geological feature that stretches from The Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland across the North of England and out to the Farne Islands.

The Romans used this geological feature as a natural barrier on which to build Hadrian’s Wall to mark the furthest reach of the Roman Empire. In subsequent centuries, various kings of England built their castles along the Whin Sill and on the coastline to protect them from invaders.

NORTHUMBERLAND FLORAL MINI PRINT COLLECTION

My floral mini print collection is based on the flowers in the landscape and formal gardens of Northumberland.

The flowers in the Northumberland landscape, the summer hay meadows, the spring flowers in my garden, the beautiful flowers in the formal and walled gardens of the large country houses form the basis of my floral monotype prints.
