shop for my printed stuff, custom made and shipped to your doorstep.

In the studio today, working on a range of linocut and woodblock stamps for a HADEDA ibis bird design. 

HADEDA lino cut

YAY! these linocuts have been so much fun to make. Thanks to my daughter Megan who got me going with linocut equipment, and my friend Carol who wanted a Hadeda for her baby grandson. So a great combination of inspiration…


Hadeda ibis are iconic to South Africa, if you’ve ever been there you’ll know their alarming cry early in the morning or evening!


So here are four prints you can get from my shop at Society6. There are some fun options to choose from. Great for the Christmas present stash if you’re already hiding gifts in the cupboard. 


 Always safer to order early – “The early bird gets the worm” haha.

Digital files will be available to download from this website within a day or two. I’ll post on social media when they’re ready to go!
