Hello, I’m Abby a multidisciplinary designer and printmaker and educator, specialising in graphic design and risograph printing. 

My work combines traditional graphic design alongside printmaking and textile/embroidery techniques. I enjoy working with subjects such as geometry, architecture, pattern, typography and plants, all of which I am greatly inspired by. I create all of my work from my small studio based in Cheshire which homes a MZ770E risograph printer.

Since 2018 I have been running my small business creating colourful eco-conscious work including risograph prints, stationery, greetings cards and paper goods. As a lover of colour my designs are bold, eye catching and aimed to brighten up your day, home or any occasion. Within everything I create I am very environmentally conscious and like to ensure my work has as minimal impact on the planet as possible. To do so I specifically select eco materials, use recycled papers and biodegradable packaging. Aside from my personal love for risograph printing, it is also an incredibly eco-friendly process creating one of a kind prints. It uses vibrant non-toxic soy based inks, low energy and creates minimal waste.
