Swimming Women

Original Lino Cut Print
Edition of 50
Paper size 30cm x 30cm 

This print is all about the joys and wellbeing wild swimming can bring. Taking inspiration from mother and daughter duo Sallie & Els who go by @theswimmingwomen on instagram. They’ve been challenging themselves to wild swim in all weathers and fundraise for those in need as they take an ice cold dip! 

I find immersing in fresh water is a transformative process and can lift up your spirits, be relaxing or exhilarating depending on your surroundings and temperature!

The design for this print is based on The Swimming Women ladies dressing up for a ‘#FabulousFriday’ swim with champagne and bikinis in February which I thought was such a joyous moment I had to turn into a print.

Both Els and Sallie share their insight into the mental health benefits of wild swimming on their instagram accounts. They share a very open and honest account about overcoming personal struggles through fresh water swimming. 

For every print sold in this edition I will donate 10% to Swimming Women’s latest fundraiser to swim 5km in 5 different locations in open water whilst raising money for Women’s Aid, a national charity working to end domestic abuse against women and children. 

As this is part of a fundraiser I’m giving interested buyers the chance to pay what you can afford for this print.

The higher the price point, the more profit will be collected for the charity. This is a new approach to selling my prints and I hope offers a opportunity for everyone to support the cause and own some unique art in the process.  The edition is split so there will only be a selection available at certain price points.

Select what you can afford on the drop down menu below. Between £50-£70
10% proceeds donated to Womens Aid.
