I am an independent and self taught artist who is predominately inspired by witchcraft, folklore and folk horror, history and nature.
I create relief prints using the lino printing technique, but more recently I have been creating digital art and paying companies to print my work. This has been ok, however I have to offer my art as pre orders and this can take a while for not only the customer to receive their item, but also a while for me to break even or make a profit, especially when I have to pay their shipping fees. This will not prove cost effective for me and my little business at all in the long run.
I have so many ideas and projects on the go in my mind but am unable to really let loose without my own means of printing.
A high quality printer will mean that I can offer a quick turnaround for my customers as well as an exciting array of items including postcards, bookmarks, stickers, prints, posters and zines.
I currently work full time on top of working for myself and having my own printer would take a lot of pressure off. I can spend hours looking for a printing company that will meet my needs which effects the price of my work.
I want to ensure my work is accessible to all my customers and keep my prices as low as possible whilst still trying to make a living.
Thank you for taking the time to read.
