The Artist

Marthe Armitage is an artist patternmaker, keen to encourage the making of things by hand. She is the founder of Marthe Armitage Prints Ltd and is the creator of a large range of hand-printed wallpapers. Finding inspiration in life and looking to her favourite artists, she draws then hand cuts wallpaper designs in lino.  She has also been designing and cutting one-off lino block prints for some time. This is the first time they have been available to buy commercially.

All the block prints are hand-drawn and then cut out of lino, to be printed on an adapted lithograph proofing press. Jacob and Marthe are hands-on in the process from start to finish, ensuring the quality of the prints is high.
