Art on Wood

Goosey Gander on Wooden Panels by Samantha Barnes

I am delighted to introduce you to my newest collection of ‘Works on Wood’.  These are sustainable pine panels that have my works printed onto them.  They are made in Holland and can be sent all over the world.  I'm kicking off this exciting new line of artworks with some drypoint print of animals - dogs & geese to be more precise.  These artworks were originally made on my beautiful press in my studio, then tranported onto the wood, quite frankly I am thrilled with them.

These works on wood are perfect as gifts for your loved one’s silly-season-gift, expect to see them featured in unexpected places as there are exciting things happening – more soon I promise.

These panels range from £175 including P&P within the UK, please click the link to view more art on wood.
