Unique, original linocut prints and Christmas cards handmade on the Dorset coast inspired by the local environment and rich nautical history

by Prints by the Bay in Bridport, England, United Kingdom

Happy Christmas! I’m Nicole from Prints by the Bay and I’m an illustrator and printmaker from Dorset.

I studied Illustration at the AUB and spent several years working on large scale murals, window design art and ‘live drawing’ at festivals and music events. I have recently rediscovered my love for printmaking after flirting with it at art school, and I haven’t looked back! I work mainly with hand carved linocuts, in my little home studio in Bridport, Dorset. My work takes inspiration from nature and the natural world, in particular the stunning and rugged local Dorset landscape, and interesting folklore, myths and fairytales, so you’ll see a lot of this imagery in my work.

I usually spend the run up to Christmas partaking in lots of lovely Christmas makers markets- but obviously this year that can’t happen! This is an opportunity to visit my ‘virtual stall’ from the safety of your living room chair. I have a range of prints and handmade Christmas cards available in various sizes and for every budget.


All my items for sale are original linoprints lovingly handmade in my home studio in Dorset. I use eco-friendly methods and materials to make and send all my prints, so you can feel secure in knowing your purchase is Earth-friendly!


Follow me on Instagram @printsbythebay to keep up with all my latest updates, behind-the-scenes pics, vids and more :)

All funds raised will be reinvested into my business, and will be spent on printmaking materials so I can continue to make more high quality and beautiful pieces of work!
