I’m a member of the British Pteridological Society, which means that I’m amongst friends who love ferns. Since starting the garden here at my home and studio, 20 years ago, I have been able to add a wide variety of exquisite ferns around the garden and especially in the small fernery that we have cultivated. This print captures the beauty of fronds of ferns, in a vibrant image, celebrating the unfurling of this ancient beauty.


Handprinted using safe wash/ soya based inks, using a solar plate. You can find out more about solar plates here.


This is an edition of 1/1.

This is an original solar plate print (it is not a digitally reproduced print).


Image size: 21 x 14.8cm

Paper size: 29.7 x 21cm


For this print I have used a solar plate. This is a more environmentally conscious way of creating printing plates. It is light-sensitive metal plate which captures an image when exposed to light. To print from this solar plate, I have hand inked and wiped, using eco-friendly inks, before pressing onto acid-free paper, using my Gunning press.


All prints come unframed, wrapped in compostable cellophane with a recycled card backing. Each print is individually hand signed, embossed with my logo and numbered.
