Carrie was very responsive when I had a question about tracking. She has been lovely. My order arrived beautifully wrapped. I’m so excited to hang this one of a kind piece in my home.

Such beautiful cards, which arrived very quickly. Very well wrapped and in a sturdy envelope too. Vibrant colours and goregous designs. Can't wait to buy from Rose and Hen again!
Hello, I'm Carrie, the creative brain behind Rose & Hen.
I design a range of botanically inspired illustrations and hand carved linocut prints, with a modern yet classic feel in my home studio based in Stamford Bridge, York. Being based in a village I have endless in inspiration from the the surrounding countryside right on my doorstep. I often take photos or collect subject matter when out walking, then create sketches which are later transposed on to lino and hand carved with specialist tools.
I use "battleship grey" lino as a preference, as I feel it has a greater ability to hold the delicate lines I create. My designs are carved as single plates and printed in solid colours, or multiple blocks which are then layered and printed using contrasting colours. At home I use a portable hand wound press to print my designs, and pigment rich oil based inks from Hawthorn Printmakers in Murton, which are a joy to work with. I also use some of my designs and repeat patterns as covers for handmade notebooks, which I stitch with colourful or metallic embroidery thread. My favourite part of the process is cutting the designs, and I often get completely immersed.
Why not follow me on Instagram, where to can see me in action in my workshop.
Often found, camera in hand taking close ups of plants. Love printmaking and spends hours just carving, as it's such a meditative process. Also has a degree in 3D Design and spent 11 years as an event organiser.

I use Royal Mail 2nd class service to deliver my orders, and usually UK deliveries take 3-5 days. Deliveries to the US can take between 3-6 weeks, which is purely down to current transit delays being experienced by delivery providers. Please ensure you are aware of this before ordering.
