Color Woodblock Prints by Linda Mahoney at Arts in the Park, Belfast
Linda has been a painter for over 30 years. In 2007 she took a workshop in Moku Hanga, Japanese watercolor woodblock printmaking, and fell in love with all parts of the process: designing an image, carving the blocks and experimenting with colors while proof printing, refining the blocks and ink colors, eventually printing the image. This is a simple low-tech form of printmaking, using brushes to apply watercolor paints and printing with a hand-held baren. This has now become her primary medium.
In search for balance, energy, peace and connection to the earth, she spends as much time as possible out of doors, hiking, cross-country skiing, kayaking, gardening and painting or observing birds in their habitats in New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Downeast Maine and coastal New Brunswick, Canada. This interaction with the natural world is the source of her inspiration.
