Marthe Armitage - printmaker

Oh my! Let me introduce these beautifully serene wallpapers and fabrics, for sale at Hamilton Weston. The designs are from original prints by Marthe Armitage. She's been making wallpaper for over 40 years, cuts all her lino blocks by hand, and does the printing by herself with a century-old offset lithographic printing press.


Do have a look over here to view some of her work in detail (click on each image to expand) ... the colours and designs are exquisite! I couldn't pick a favourite ....
