I am a printmaker and graphic designer based in York, North Yorkshire.


As a printmaker I create original linocut prints inspired by nature and the great British countryside.

My linocut prints are designed, carved, inked and printed by hand in my studio, making each one subtly unique. My most recent work takes inspiration from the Yorkshire landscape and coastline.

I teach linocut workshops in my York studio, where you can learn how to design, carve and print your own unique linocut print.

Update March 2020

I will be offering a selection of online tutorials and step by step guides such as  'How to make a linocut for beginners'. To be first to hear about these please join my mailing list

Deliveries are still available by post, picked up from my York pick up point or delivered locally by bike. See my online shop or contact 07808 472379 or michellehughesdesign@outlook.com Your support is extremely appreciated at this difficult time. 

As a graphic designer I specialise in branding and marketing materials with a handcrafted style.


My successful 27 year design career has provided me with the skills and knowledge I now use to work with my clients.


I draw on my broad base of design skills in surface pattern design, illustration and product design, focusing them onto the unique needs of each client’s project. I am organised with an excellent track record of delivering a wide range of projects on time and to budget. Using my retail experience I research the target market and competitors to identify opportunities.​
