Fairy Penguins, is a hand printed reduction linocut in oil inks, on Fabriano Artistico paper.

The world’s smallest penguin, known as the little or fairy penguin, have breeding colonies along the east coast of Tasmania, creating burrows in the sand dunes to raise their young. While they are not normally easy to see, they can often be heard from the water with their soft call – almost like the quack of a duck.
