About

Welcome to moonandlion's atelier.


:: My art ::

I enjoy working with my hands, getting dirty playing with glue and ink, sowing my studio floor with a gazillion paper scraps.

I'm also a rock'n roll singer, and a fiction writer.
Art is my passion, and I'm making my life orbit around it everyday.


:: Process (includes playlists) ::

Before setting up to make a new collage, or hand-carve a new lino block, I need to have fresh water near, and incense in the air. Then I play the appropriate soundtrack. What's appropriate? It depends. My favourite bands are The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Rolling Stones and New…

:: Process (includes playlists) ::

Before setting up to make a new collage, or hand-carve a new lino block, I need to have fresh water near, and incense in the air. Then I play the appropriate soundtrack. What's appropriate? It depends. My favourite bands are The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Rolling Stones and New Bomb Turks. But while creating I find myself listening to really cheesy 80s pop, the music I grew up to.
So thanks for taking the time to read this! I'm happy to see you around.

:: What's new ::

After a little hibernation, I'm re-launching my shop this Spring :) Stay tuned!
:: Recycle. Reuse. Re-Love ::

I believe we use too much paper and create a lot of waste. One of the things I really like about my art is the fact that I am recycling, upcycling, reusing and generally re-loving stuff to give it a new life. That's why I always try to ship with clean, recycled materials, and also use water-based inks and a lot of post-consumer paper, card and chipboard.

:: More things I love ::

Cats, books, punk rock, mix tapes, succulents, sandalwood, Golden Yunnan tea, green clothing, strawberries, silver rings, brownies, pasta, vintage 1950s furniture, notebooks and journals, little black dresses, fountain pens, jeans, champagne, traveling, the smell of woodland, blue and green glass vases, pen pals, hand mirrors.
