I am an artist/printmaker working from my studio based in the UK, just outside London, inspired by a passion for design, nature, printmaking and dogs. Spending my days creating and crafting an ever-expanding range unique, handmade prints is my idea of heaven...
Born from a lifelong love of art, design and print - I am working to offer affordable, original art which is different from that commonly found in chain stores on the high street or the online discount giants. I have many years of experience in design and printmaking and a passion for making original work using traditional, handmade methods.
Digital prints are something you won't find at Inky Dog Studio. When you purchase one of my linocuts, you are buying a completely original and unique piece. Unlike the "giclee" prints sold by so many, each print created by Inky Dog Studio is handmade using the linocutting method. The image is hand carved into a lino block, which is then inked up with either oil-based or water-based block printing ink and applied with a roller. This block is then used to print the image onto a variety of paper or card products with one of my printing presses - either a small etching press or traditional bookbinding press - whichever is best for the job! No two prints are ever the same - each is a totally unique piece of art!
At Inky Dog Studio, I am passionate about all dogs and believe they improve the lives of people everywhere. I want to play my own small part in helping to fund the many Assistance dogs who are able to change the lives of the people who need them most. To this end, I pledge a donation of 10% from each sale of selected products on this website to Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
"Deafness can be a very isolating disability. A hearing dog can give a deaf person a newfound sense of independence and confidence now they have a loyal companion and a true friend by their side." - www.hearingdogs.org.uk
I hope you enjoy visiting my online store, having a browse and of course I’d be very happy if you found something you'd like to purchase! Feedback from my customers is something I value greatly, so if you have any suggestions for improving the site or expanding the range of products on offer, I’d love to hear from you.
