When we visited Monika Petersen at her workshop just before Christmas, there was pressure to finish all the prints. Monika Petersen had hectic red cheeks but was still completely calm. When you see Monika Petersen's works of art, you understand that this is a necessity. Because despite the fact that the pictures look simple with "only" a single color, you see when you get closer, what a sure hand it may require to prepare such a work. Who does not remember back in his own schooling where you got a piece of linoleum in your hand and a knife and then you had to try to cut something that looked like something. This was incredibly difficult and besides the fact that it was difficult to get the desired motif, it was also often destroyed by a hand that was too fast or inaccurate so the knife just slipped, practice!

Linoleum printing, also called linoleum cutting, is a simple graphic printing technique. Recesses are cut in a linoleum sheet. which then forms a motif. Linoleum is a flooring material. Then the raised parts are painted with the ink, e.g. gold on a roller which is then transferred to the paper. The paper used is carefully selected graphic paper from Italy. The cardboard paper, which is available in several colors, gives a good effect due to its structure.

In addition to fantastic craftsmanship, Monika Petersen's prints are incredibly beautiful and elegant. The pictures change character during the day and evening, depending on the light. One moment you see a sparklingleafthe next moment a leaf just a delicate outline. The choice of the color of the paper is also of great importance, see e.g. how different the poppy looks depending on whether it is onwhiteorblackbackground. Likewise with the frame. Should the frame be black, natural or the brand new and hot with the "floating frame". It looks super cool with a Monika Petersenprinton a picture wall along with completely different styles, e.g. Mette Handberg

Do you want a simpler expression, e.g. across the sofa or in the hallway, choose two or three identical pictures from Monika Petersen. It gives a super nice and aesthetic expression. Need to buy onegiftfor someone you care about, a Monika Petersen print is a really good choice.

Linoleum prints have been given a revival thanks to Monika Petersen, who gives the old craft a beautiful, modern touch.
