Dollybird prints was established in 2008 by me - Sarah Broughton. I gained a degree in graphic design and illustration and then worked as a freelance illustrator for several years, as well as working a a visiting university lecturer in graphic design.
Dollybird prints was started as focus for my creativity after a career break looking after two daughters. Printmaking has been the result of this endeavour.
I have experimented with various printmaking methods but now seem to have found a process which really suits. I use vinyl lino and etch into it with lino tools. I then ink the printing plate up as an intaglio and pull it through my etching printing press.
The aim in all of my work is to produce a little bit of magic which lifts my day - and hopefully that of others too!
