Story

Hi, I’m Jenni and it’s a pleasure to welcome you to my colourful, creative world. 

I set up my first art and design studio in 2012.  When I say studio, I mean a box room in my old flat.  When I say box room, I mean a big cupboard.  I started off making hand printed cards using simple at-home printmaking techniques like linocutting and screen printing and after a while I tried my hand at selling fairs, pop-ups and then through my very basic home-built online shop.

My mission was simple: be passionate about my creative process, use good quality, sustainable materials, buy locally and and don’t worry about making mistakes.

I’ve long had a passion for print, particularly the layered, beautifully textured block printed designs from the 1950s and 60s as seen on fabulous textiles, ceramics and in book illustrations.  The more I experimented with different types of printmaking, the more I realised how much I enjoyed the straightforwardness and honesty of lino printing, which I could combine with drawing and mark making without too much mess or expense. 

Ten years on, my business has grown and is different in lots of ways, but my philosophy hasn’t changed.  I haven’t strayed too far from my original design and print processes, either.  One of the best things about working for yourself is quality control.  For example, I’ve always chosen to create my own print multiples and still make each one myself in my workshop.  This way, I can make sure all the colours, lines and textures look as good as they should do.  I love using the best archival fine art papers and industry standard giclee print technology, which creates a beautiful quality product to last a lifetime. 

My work is also available to buy from a number of lovely shops and galleries around the UK.  Please shop small whenever you can and help support your local high street!  Bespoke products and commissions are also available. If this is something youʼd like to chat to me about, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

When I’m not working, I enjoy being out in nature, cycling, lifting weights, chilling with my cat (in helpful studio mode below) and collecting Midcentury furniture (or often admiring it from afar).

Thank you so much for stopping by!
