My latest limited edition screen-print is based upon the words of an anonymous Elizabethan madrigal that I stumbled upon as a youth, and inspired by Medieval manuscript illumination and C17th stump-work embroidery.
The print features a pair of lovers in playful pursuit, lost in the branches of a fecund forest ripe with fruits, flowers and foliage. The poem floats in a heart-shaped clearing above them surrounded by a host of birds, bugs and other woodland creatures, whilst cupid, bow and arrow in hand, looks down from on high.
Available in two colourways, a soft pink and a vibrant green, the print is A3 (42 cm high by 30 across - a standard frame-size) and in a strictly limited edition of 30 per colourway. Printed on 300 gsm paper the print can be yours (or your loved one's!) for £75 + P&P and is available for purchase from my Etsy shop and other reputable outlets.
