I’m Carolyn Murphy, a London-born 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!

What’s new?

In January 2022, I started a 2 year part-time MA in Fine Art Printmaking at Middlesex University in London. I’m enjoying the challenge and the chance to show work in the capital. Having become a member of the Printmakers Council in 2021, I will have a linocut in their archive shortly. You can read more in News.

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.


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.
