Affordable prints inspired by animals and nature

Thank you for visiting my Etsy shop!

I create affordable hand-made and high-quality digital prints inspired by animals and nature. I hope my illustrations capture a little of the beauty of these subjects. The unlikely aviary pairing of the owl and the penguin formed the inspiration for the name of my shop.

My influences

One of my favourite types of art is ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world), Japanese wood-block prints from masters like Hokusai, Hiroshige and Kuniyoshi. Ukiyo-e woodblock prints were hugely popular, and because they sold for the same price as a bowl of soba noodles, they were also very affordable.

My processes and ethos

I make prints that are affordable and accessible to everyone, while using quality supplies and processes that will last for decades and are ecologically friendly.

I design and sell greeting cards and giclee (high-quality digital) art prints, which are the best way of reproducing the detailed line work and full colour of my pen and ink, watercolour, and digital illustrations.

I also create simple, inexpensive hand-made prints that focus on colour and texture. Because of the nature of the linocut printing process, each of these prints is unique. I add some original elements to each, whether that be charcoal pencil, watercolours, or metallic ink. I hope that by creating high-quality, unique artwork for a relatively low cost, this will enable more people to be able to own and enjoy an art print.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my shop.
