Sophie Elm is a printmaker, designer and illustrator, creating linocut prints, printed homewares and ephemera.
Her work is driven by seasonal changes in the garden and countryside around her. As humans, we have celebrated nature and the changing of the seasons in all cultures and through many art forms. Sophie feels this is important to continue to do today and her work is her personal method of doing so.
She uses vibrant colours, pattern and often combines typography too; an influence from her illustrative background. Although her work is predominantly hand burnished linocuts, she likes to experiment with other forms of printmaking too, as well as hand drawn imagery and papercuts.
