Even more beautiful in real life, a true work of art. I was off work and very unwell at home when this wonderful print came through my door...it really cheered me up. Now it is on my wall the little bee will lift my spirits every time I see it. Thank you so very much for the small and equally lovely printed notecard that you kindly included for free. It was such a nice surprise and will also be going on my wall. I'm so pleased I came across your shop, this print is exactly what I've been looking for.
Hand printed linocut prints
Mangle Prints started through my love of printing. Unable to afford the money and space to accommodate a traditional printing press, i looked at alternative ways of producing my prints. I found an old washing mangle that works wonderfully as a press, and since then i have been producing prints via this make-shift press.
All my prints are hand printed using the traditional block printing method. Carving linoleum blocks to produce printing plated, that are then inked and run through the press (or mangle!) to produce each print.
Like many artists my inspiration comes from the natural world. I love to look at the environment around me for inspiration, whether it's the birds and insects in my garden to the humble flora found on a walk.
