About

‘Printmaker Nancy Power’s work reflects the life around her. Be it a changing rural landscape, the decaying plants in her garden, the geese on the lake, or her collection of hand crafted ceramics, she finds inspiration from many sources.
Deliberately eclectic in subject matter, her work is harmonised by her colour palette and distinctive inking process. 
Nancy uses the reduction method of lino printmaking; carving away at just one block for each consecutive colour to reveal the final image. By inking from dark to light, as opposed to the more traditional light to dark, Nancy’s work has engaging depth and colour layering.’

    1. Hi Mick, thank you! And thank you for the follow too!
      I married into the Power family who do indeed have very strong Irish connections, and a lot of nuns… Myself, I am a British mongrel – English, Irish and Scottish forbears, so a bit of a mutt!!

    1. Hello Ronnie!
      Ooh, lovely, so glad you found it. I seem to have gone down the photography path of late but I am going to make a much bigger effort to post my sketches and lino prints on here too. See you soon!
