Pen and Crayon.

Although i haven't printed for a while, it's been great to start drawing again, and playing around with some fun ideas for patterns and prints. Using ink and pencil crayons, and a little Photoshop tweaking, this design almost grew from the start of drawing the first butterfly. It been wonderful using such vibrant colours, really lifting my spirits in the dire, dark winter. Great fun to create!

New Cards






I would have loved to have been able to hand print some Christmas cards this year, but unfortunately time has caught up on me and caught me by surprise! So this year i have decided to get some cards professional printed from my previous winter deer lino print. Available in packs of three from Folksy. https://beta.folksy.com/shops/mangleprints/collections/86041





Also available, packs of three designs taken from some lino prints i have created throughout the year. Each pack contains one of each design.

Mangle Prints and The Cotton Potter

I've been so excited about working with The Cotton Potter on this project, as I've been a fan of Emma's work for a long time. A little while ago, Emma asked me to design her a lino print bird for her wonderful collection of hand sewn birds............



So you can imagine how thrilled i was when Emma emailed me the pictures of the finished lino cut bird! More of Emma's delightful fabric birds can be found in her Folksy and Etsy shops.

Winter Deer Linocut Prints

Fresh back from The Norwich Print Fair and it's back to the printing again with a new lino cut print. Although i've created two colour ways and backgrounds, i think i prefer the blue version, maybe the red and blue may be more suitable for a Christmas card? These new prints will be available soon and will be heading to the framers ready for some up and coming Christmas shows, more news very soon!
