'm Holly, the artist behind Larkstone Studio from which I create nature focused lino prints. I'm a beach ranger and artist based in Ilfracombe. I spend my life protecting the habitat and wildlife of the North Devon coast, looking after Croyde Beach, advocating for conservation and highlighting how humans are having an impact on the environment.
As Larkstone Studio I create prints inspired by the wildlife and scenery of the British coastline. My designs capture the things which inspire me whilst exploring North Devon, ranging from seaweed or sea shells to whales, puffins, seascapes and even include some of Ilfracombe itself!
To make my handmade prints I use a single lino block, black ink and print onto a white paper, as I just love the simplicity and bold image that creates. My handmade prints can be found at Hand:Plant on Ilfracombe High Street!
