Letters & Lino is the creation of printmaker and calligrapher Katy Upton. Katy creates original linocut and calligraphy cards and prints, perfect to send as a gift or to brighten up your home.
All her prints are original designs, drawn by hand onto a lino block, then carved (by hand) and printed (…by hand!). They have then been digitally scanned and printed by Whistlefish. Katy grew up in the Cotswolds before living in London for ten years where she worked in the television industry. She has since returned to Gloucestershire and works from her garden studio when she can steal time away from her two young children!
Katy has always enjoyed the British coast, and designed and carved her linocut print of Salcombe Harbour during the first lockdown as she missed being able to be by the sea! She has spent many fantastic holidays in the area since childhood and now loves taking her own children to her favourite spots. Katy has subsequently created her St Ives and Padstow linocut prints for Whistlefish.
