Who we are

Siren Prints is an online store selling original linocut art prints, handmade stationery and printed gifts.

A lot of my work is inspired by mythology and folklore, featuring modern interpretations of classical Greek, Roman and Celtic goddesses. I try and think about how a particular goddess would translate into the modern world – for example, Aphrodite was the Greek goddess of love and beauty, born from the sea foam. In my print, she’s in a retro bikini, splashing in the waves. Goddesses have traditionally spent a lot of time reclining on sofas, not wearing a lot of clothes, for most of art history, so I love the idea of reclaiming these myths and portraying them with a lot more agency, showing different facets of femininity.

A linocut is a form of relief printing that involves sketching a design out onto a linoleum block, clearing out the background using carving tools, and then inking up the block and printing onto paper. My pieces are hand-pressed, rather than using a printing press or machine, so there’s a lot of elbow grease involved in transferring the ink onto the paper. Every print has its own little marks and characteristics from the printing process, which means each one is a little bit unique – there’s something wonderful about that, in an age where so much of what we see each day is digital.
