Uprising is a combination print of two different types of print. A collagraph print is printed on the first pass through the press and then a linocut print is printed on top. The collagraph plate is made by creating various textures on a cardboard plate. The finished plate is then inked intaglio and printed onto damp paper. The lino layer is one piece of lino that has been carved, inked and printed.

Each collagraph layer is inked intuitively, I don’t try to make the prints identical. This means this is a varied edition and the prints are sold by the edition number, you choose the one in the edition you like and purchase that particular version of the print. 


The inks used for this print are Akua intaglio inks for the collagraph layer and Caligo Safewash ink for the linocut layer. The paper is Somerset Satin 250gsm printmaking paper.


Handmade Prints

These prints are all handmade and as such there can be slight variations in the prints in an edition, though these are very slight. It means that each print in an edition is unique and is an original in it’s own right.

Varied Editions (VE) 

Prints that are marked VE by the edition number are part of a varied edition. This means there are enough difference between the prints that they are sold by their individual number. 


Please bear in mind that although I take every care to photograph the prints as faithfully as possible there can also be variations in colour between what you view on a screen and the original print.
