The Nook

The Nook (detail) The artist.  9" x 12"

Katie Heyne Caulk

Self-taught, following careers in semi-conductors and book cover design, raising a family, and being a public education activist, I returned to art: illustrations, painting, and printmaking. Printmaking. Specifically, linocut,  introduced to me in 1971. In 2009, I studied Pablo Picasso's linocut reductive technique. Rather than use multiple blocks for multi-color prints, the reductive (or "subtractive") method employs one block for all colors. The image emerges after a series of carvings and inkings. Because I am essentially "destroying" the block substrate, once the printing edition is complete, I retire the block and print no more. Consequently, my editions are extremely limited, often under ten.  I love clean lines, flat planes of color and simplicity of design. I am grateful that my linocuts have been exhibited in multiple galleries, recognized with awards, published as cover art and enjoyed by collectors world-wide.

Original Art at an Affordable Price!


Because printmakers reproduce, yes, I have linocuts for sale! If you are interested in pricing and availability  (some series have sold out) or simply want more information...such as the "story" behind the art...I would love to hear from you. My editions are very limited. Usually no more than 10 in a series. I keep one or two. No two are exactly alike. That's the beauty of handprinting and the printing process in general. 

Linocuts are printed using Caligo inks (which are eco-friendly); I vary the printing paper, but most are printed on heavy BFK Rives printmaking paper with a minimum of 1" around the image, numbered, signed and dated in pencil.

Prices vary depending on size and complexity of design. Generally, 9" x 12" linocuts are priced between $100-$200 each (not mounted or matted). 

Additional Information: 9" x 12" linocuts look lovely matted in off-the-shelf 16" x 20" mats. If you prefer your linocut mounted and matted, please inquire. I may be able to accommodate you for a modest fee.  We can work together if you require a framed piece.
