School Shoes

Limited edition colour linoprint (on A5 150gsm paper) available in either black with fluorescent accent or sepia, by Colleen Ellington @ellingtonart The sepia colour prints are a shade of brown created from Essdee and Schmincke printing inks, that cannot be repeated so this is a rare edition from the artist. The print is based on memories of the artist's schooldays, when going to be fitted for school shoes felt like a major event! She thinks she remembers them being called "baby doll shoes" but can't be sure now. She got her first pair when she was 9 or 10 years old and thought them as "very cool" as they seemed so casual and comfortable after the more formal stiff school shoes she had been used to wearing. (All prints lovingly created using a washing mangle as a print press.)
