Coastal Birds Linocuts

A collections of 18 linocuts of birds commonly found on coastal estuaries and rivers.

‘Coastal Birds is a collection of linocuts inspired
by the birds that regularly haunt and bring to life my local patch of shoreline. I am particularly attracted to birds with bold dynamic plumage such as Lapwings, Shelduck and Oystercatchers, and the patterns found in their habitat of water, mud and sky. The Avocet is a special favourite, one that I spend many hours sketching, a rare bird in my early birdwatching days it is now a frequent sight on this east coast estuary.’
