An original woodcut print, printed onto fine Japanese paper. Designed and printed entirely by hand, this is a high-quality original artwork.
Inspired by the language of light and dark that is seen throughout many passages of the Bible. Most significantly this piece was inspired by the words of Psalm 139:12 "Even the darkness is not dark to you / the night is bright as the day / for darkness is as light with you" (Psalm 139:12 ESV), and Genesis 1:2 "The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters".
This print makes the perfect gift or artistic addition to your own home.
Each print is approximately 14.5 x 18.8 cm in size, it fits perfectly in a frame with a standard 5x7" (12.7 x 17.78 cm) window. This design is a very limited run of 5 editions. Each print is signed and editioned by the artist.
Frame not included. Item comes fully packaged in a cellophane slip with cardboard backing.
If you would like advice as to how to frame your print to best effect, please feel free to message me.
Each print is slightly individual! Due to being handmade, each print varies slightly in terms of definition and detail and they include some speckles from the printing process - this is a natural result of woodcut printing and it is part of the design. All prints meet a high quality of finish. Individual prints may vary slightly in size.
The Japanese paper that this print is made from is high quality and tear-resistant, but also very delicate. Please handle with care, and please do not attempt to trim.
Meet the Maker
Ellie Walker is a graphic designer and illustrator based currently in Oxford.
My designs featured on Cheerfully Given are inspired directly from the poetical and life-giving words of the Bible. Through these illustrations I have sought to capture the spirit of the passage that inspires each piece.
I am drawn to the tactile process of printmaking - in particular screen printing and woodcut relief printing. The immersive process of printmaking requires heightened focus and submission to the sometimes unexpected variables that can affect the final outcome. It is when I am absorbed in this process that I feel truly connected to God, the Creator.
Each print is individually handmade, signed and editioned. They make a perfect artistic addition to your own home or for your friends and loved ones.
