Cut by cut - your introduction to colourful linocuts

Register now!


Hey, I’m Anna and I’m an artist and illustrator with heart and soul. In 2018 I specialized in linoleum printing and since then create my whimsical girls, all dedicated to a particular theme.

New since 2023 are my cheerful children’s motifs, which are mainly from the animal world, as the protection of these is very important to me.

All my motifs unite my love for harmonious color compositions.

What is linocut?

The prints always consist of three overlapping layers of color. To do this, I carve three blocks that are printed on top of each other. Each print is an original and absolutely unique!

I am also delighted to be a Relief Printmaking Ambassador for Cranfield Colours – the manufacturer of my favorite inks.
