Meet the maker Melanie Wickham

I like to create images that make me smile - and hopefully viewers will do so too.

The images are mainly black and white lino prints in limited editions and are hand printed using a boxwood burnishing tool on Somerset Satin paper. I enjoy pushing the limitations of lino printing as a technique, and creating an image with a 'drawn' feel to it is something I often aim for.

The strong contracts that black and white provides can mean that the images are very striking and subtlety is not usually associated with lino prints. The quality of line produced using this technique is something that I particularly like and I feel it lends itself well to my images which are influenced by my training in illustration.


I send items out 2nd class, usually the day I receive the order and will always email you to let you know its status. If you need 1st class postage let me know and we can arrange for you to pay a little extra.

Hopefully you will love your item and it will arrive safe and sound. Let me know if there is a problem and if you need to return it please let me know. If the item is returned in its original condition I will refund the sale amount minus the amount paid for postage.
