Collection: Small Print
A collection of small scale prints, the designs are inspired by lots of different things, from Cornish flagstones to French building facades. This collection will be left open and I will add to it over time. All of my patterns start out as a hand carved lino block, designs are available on a range of items in my shop, they are also available digitally for licencing.
Named after my eldest son, who had a hand in the design of this pattern. He was called Chip as a baby. He drew quite a few wiggly lines on the diagonal, and I carved a few of them and then played around with the repeat.

On a family holiday in Falmouth, pottering around and enjoying a vegan pasty or two! It was on Arwenack Street that the design for this pattern seemed to fall from the sky into my brain!

Inspired by the flagstones of Penzance High street. The patterns on the floor, just at the foot of Sir Humphry Davy statue, caught my eye and sparked an idea.

This was just a doodle, so, I named it after Dorothy Larcher. Total printing legend and a huge inspiration.

The beautiful buildings of St Malo were the inspiration for this pattern, the facades of buildings continue to be a constant source of my pattern inspiration.
There’s a lovey printer by the name of Paul over in Penkridge. I found this small button/ belt buckle in a tin on his desk. He said the tin of buttons had come from a house clearance in Abbott Street. Being the lovely printer, he is, he let me keep the button.

Until now all of my prints have been in a single colour, Rellik is the first ‘two coloured’ pattern I have attempted. The inspiration for this pattern comes from tiles on the shop front of the London vintage store, Rellik.

This block is made from the left over piece of the Doorway Stripe pattern. It’s then printed in a random repeat. The Georgian House that the Doorway stripe pattern is inspied by is on Waterloo Road in Wolverhampton – hence the name Waterloo. I think it has a 1950’s angularity feel to it.
