A long-time artist and respected teacher at the Queensland University of Technology in his younger years, Jim Aitkenhead has been exhibiting his unique lino block art since 1986 and has been involved in exhibitions in Scotland, London and the US as well as Queensland.
His textiles are inspired by marine fossils, botanica and everyday objects, and uses block printing on fabric, a technique Jim was first introduced to as a student of the Dundee College of Art in Scotland in 1947.
