I print at night
and I have this thing with other print makers
It is my pleasure to introduce you to print makers that I have grown to respect for the sheer talent of their work and the causes that drive them to produce. Every print has a story, every block has a journey that begins in the mind of the print maker. Here, I introduce you to my favourite print makers and the stories behind one of their print.

My current guest is one of my favourite humans, and a printmaker I am constantly inspired by and in awe of. Mitsa Breidi, otherwise known as Cuts and Sketches, writes about what inspires her to print and shares her beloved Mon Liban prints with you. Links to Mitsa’s Instagram can be found on her essay page, and as soon as her online shop is set up, you’ll hear about it here!
Priya of Priya Prints. Priya is a printmaker based in Seattle. Her Instagram account is one to follow and you can see the trajectory of her print style through her grid. Starting with smaller sized prints, her current projects are mind blowing – large blocks with deep meaning and equally deep carving skills. Links to Priyas’s Etsy, Facebook and Instagram page can be found in her guest essay along with some eye candy prints.
Cath Bristow, of Cath Bristow Prints. Cath is a wonder. A print maker from Brighton, Cath also uses her skills in community engagement and outreach workshops across the south east of England. If you’re visiting this site because you like bright colours, Cath won’t disappoint you – her work is a feast for the eyes and, in her essay, Cath explains her working process with screen printing and collagraphs. I hope Cath inspires you to take a closer look at her work, which you can do from the links and clicks section of her page, but also to take up a different form of printing.
My first guest is Peter Williams, a maths student at the University of Manchester. Peter is one to watch, following his work is like witnessing the birth of a star, and I have a feeling he will go far. You should follow him on Instagram now so you can look cool in front of your friends when you tell them you knew him before he was famous. Peter writes about his Teufelssee print, links to his Etsy shop and Instagram can be found on his essay page.
