Placenta Artwork commission
I was recently honoured to be asked by a husband to create a very personal and thoughtful gift for his wife. She has recently given birth to the latest addition to their family, a little baby boy. The husband sent me a photo of his wife's placenta (yes, unusual I know!) and asked me to create a linocut artwork from it. While developing the initial composition we both hit upon the idea of including his family's names into the artwork.
The family have kindly let me share some photographs of the artwork. I'm really pleased that they are so thrilled with it - it's not my usual subject matter!
