Hope Grows is a 11x14” hand carved linoleum block print on irises and their roots in the style of traditional woodblock. The print is available on two paper choices: natural green fibrous paper and natural white fibrous paper. Irises are symbols of hope and resilience as they are some of the first flowers to bloom in the spring and oftentimes have to adapt to changing and untimely weather patterns. Their roots are robust and tubular and their hearty nature helps make them adaptable flowers that bring much beauty in the spring.
*Please note that due to the nature of hand-carved linoleum block printing, every print will have its own unique quality. Each edition is inspected to be the best quality and similar, but I cannot ensure exact replica of the print pictured on this site. Part of the magic of printmaking is all of the print-specific marks like "noise" or carving marks that add to the feel of the print. Please take note of this when ordering.
