I’m Michelle Hughes, a professional linocut artist and designer in York, UK. Training in fashion design, I worked in the design industry as a surface pattern, giftware, homeware and clothing designer, developing ranges for high street retailers for 25 years. In 2016, I set up my own business, to create my own range of linocut prints. My inspiration is taken from British landscapes and nature around the UK. I sell my original linocut prints through my online shop, art galleries and events. I teach linocut workshops in my York garden studio. To date, I have taught nearly 40 in-person workshops to over 150 students. I started out on a shoestring, spending £20 on beginners lino cutting equipment. Things snowballed from there!
