Nettle Cottage Prints
'Nettle Cottage Prints' is a collaborative print project between artists Becky Ciesielski and Sarah Parker. From their cottage on the North York Moors they produce contemporary folk art lino prints and hand printed cards. They create soothing, uplifting lino prints inspired by the moorland and coastline of the area. Their depictions of botanical, bird, wildlife and cottage folk art are enhanced by a sense of changing seasons and harmonious coexistence.
"From the wild and elemental to the intimate and domestic, we are inspired by our surroundings. Art captures a moment of connection. It creates a visual story. for us, the magic of printmaking exists in all the stages- from the initial moment of connection that sparks an idea, sketch and design work, to the carving of the lino."
Nettle Cottage Prints produces small editions of designs, using materials and techniques to complement their compositions. Staithes Gallery has a varied supply of unframed prints as well as a range of hand printed greetings cards. The following images are representative of the images we have available but designs may differ.
