Patience and precision was never really my thing...

...but when you're working with sharp blades, there's no room for error! One little slip and that's it; the print's all gone wrong and I'm sporting a really attractive plaster on my hand for the next week.

Despite the (very minor) dangers of lino printing, it's a wonderful process which I first discovered in late 2020. Determined to make my own album artwork, I set about finding a medium that was difficult to get bad results out of - foolishly, I thought lino printmaking was just that.

Upon revealing my very first print - some lettering - I realised I had underestimated the amount of common sense needed in order to achieve lino-printed success. The end result came out completely backwards. Instead of reading 'Ilonalowe', it read 'ewolanolI'. Whoops.

I gave that slip-up to the good people of TikTok, and they enjoyed it, and I received an appropriate amount of condescending comments for my mistake. However, the incident lit a fire in my belly. I would NOT be made a fool of by my printing kit!

Over the next year, I practised and practised. I printed magpies, and lighthouses, and seascapes, and even achieved my original goal of designing my own album artwork. In fact, so many prints are piling up in my little Peartree flat that I thought I ought to get rid of some...

And so, here I am, sharing my work with you on Etsy and hoping that you enjoy it half as much as I enjoyed the process of creating it. I can't wait to pack up your first order!
