Mini Print of the Month

What do you get when you join my monthly print club?

I love printmaking because it allows me to share a work I love with many different collectors at once. In order to provide even more ways for art lovers to collect original prints, I started a monthly mini print subscription in 2017.


Club members receive a surprise hand-crafted print, a series of images showing the process of its making, and a letter from me, each month for 9 months. 

I hand-carve a new piece each month so you get a delightful surprise in your mailbox. You won’t know which pieces you’ll receive before I announce the new print on the first of each month, but I make sure they all look great together in case you’d like to do a beautiful gallery wall or line them up in a row to fill out a space. And with the added materials about the print that you receive in your parcel, you’ll feel like you were part of the creation process too.

A little about me

If you don’t know me I’m Ellen, a thirty something year old printmaker and painter living in London with my husband Andrea. I'm originally from California and Andrea is from Italy. We met while I was completing my undergraduate degree in Art History and Italian in Rome back in 2008.

Coming from an Art History background I'm inspired by different art historical periods, from Renaissance art and Japanese printmaking to modern abstraction. And yes that's my own body you see in my images, not because it's of particular interest to me but because I love figure drawing and I have easy access to it. I really see it as though it could be anybody's body. Through it we can see each of our experiences as beings in the world with all of the complexity, pain, wonder, and joy that that brings. 

Ultimately I feel my work is for the sensitive among us. Those who experience intensely, who are overcome by beauty, who are overwhelmed by the rush and loudness of our world, and who wish to linger more fully in the present.

The exercise of printmaking actually lends itself to my own search for serenity and fortitude. There’s pleasure in creating an image that I find beautiful, graitification in carving an image out of a lino block, and satisfaction in manually pressing a beautiful Japanese paper onto the carved, inked surface repetitively to create an edition of original prints. It feels purposeful and honest. And when mistakes are made, as they often are, there is nothing to do but take a deep breath and begin again. Healing my soul and healing yours - that is what printmaking does for me. I hear from collectors that these mini prints help awaken equanimity in their home, as I hope they’ll do in yours.

Collecting Mini Prints

This is a 9 month subscription where you’ll receive a new original mini print each month. Payments of £15 are collected monthly, and will cease automatically at the end of the 9 months, but you can always sign up again! On the flip side, we all change our minds from time to time, so if you’d like you can cancel your membership at any point. No commitment + original artwork = utter delight! 

A 9 month subscription allows you to make a beautiful gallery wall like the one below.

What past members have said

"I absolutely love your prints, I have gifted a mini print to everyone involved in both of my births (midwives etc)— every recipient has been floored by how beautiful your art is."

- Sara

"Thank you so much! I had a couple rounds of your print subscriptions and absolutely love them all! I adore your art. It is peaceful and powerful"


"They are so beautiful and I always enjoy reading the stories about the print as they resonate so much. So thank you for all you do and this great format of mini prints, every month it is a joy - as I am a PhD I did not expect I could afford something so beautiful so I appreciate it a lot."


"Your beautiful print arrived safely today, it’s even lovelier in real life."
