I’m Carolyn Murphy, an artist and printmaker based in Manchester, UK. I make original art, by hand, in limited editions, using traditional printmaking techniques.
On this website you can buy my work – with free delivery within the UK. Please have a look at my Gallery to see all my work. In my SHOP you will find works that are currently available. I love to hear your comments and feedback, so do feel free to contact me about my work.
If you are interested in greetings cards, you can find some of my linocut designs on the ‘Love From The Artist’ website. I also have some special occasion cards for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and more. They are all digitally printed on demand, environmentally friendly and posted out directly to you by this great not-for-profit organisation. You can buy my cards individually, online, and even personalise them with messages and images inside!
In my BLOG I write about my latest printmaking projects – and share the ‘artist behind the scenes’ bits. You can also see the stages of making a finished work, as I often include images of work in progress. In 2021 I started to blog for Twitter Art Exhibit and interview participating artists.
Until February 2021, I was exhibiting at Towneley Hall in Burnley as part of the ‘Impressions’ exhibition. Printmakers from Prospect Studio in Rossendale produced works inspired by Towneley Hall itself.
My ‘panopticon’ series of linocuts of Lancashire landmarks is now at Longitude Gallery in Clitheroe and on their website here.
In 2018 I completed my first linocut commission, for the Macmillan Cancer Support Information Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital in South Manchester. I’m very happy to talk to you about ideas for a new commission project.
