Illustrated, carved and printed by hand.
Hi, I'm Molly, the face behind Delightfully Chaotic Co.
I started the Delightfully Chaotic Co. in 2017 after finishing my A-levels and feeling unsure of what the future held for me, I took a diversion from my academic roots and explored my creative side. I now specialise in creating original pieces of art that are illustrated, carved and printed by hand using the technique of lino-cutting alongside creating digitally printed art.
My aim is to create art and decor that brings not only aesthetic value to your space but which also encourages and empowers. A lot of my designs include quotes centred around mental wellbeing, whether it's in the form of a hand-lettered sticker stuck to your mirror, or a larger 11" x 14" print displayed in your home, I hope these designs evoke feelings of positivity and hope for the future.
Alongside art prints, I also create a range of hand-carved stamps, greeting cards and illustrated sets of stickers. All of which I make from my home in North Devon.
The process of designing and creating my lino-cut prints.
All my designs begin life as digital illustrations on my iPad, once drawn, I print it out and transfer it onto a sheet of lino or rubber. I then begin carving my design using a variety of gouges and blades. It can take anywhere from an hour, to carve a simple design, to a few days to carve larger, more intricate designs.
After carving, I then prep the surface. With art prints, I take large A1 sheets of card and rip them up into the correct sizes, I love this method as it means I can choose any size I'd like my work to be and that each piece has a raw deckled edge which looks striking when displayed in a glass frame. For greeting cards, I measure and cut them with a craft knife and then score the centre fold line.
Next, I print using either colour straight from the tube or I hand-mix a few to get the shade I want. Some designs only require one layer of ink, but some have multiple which need to dry out before the next one can be added, meaning prints can take a few weeks to complete.
