Hi, I'm Laura and I run The Black Pug Press from my home studio in sunny Devon!
Here at The Black Pug Press you'll find an ever-expanding collection of lino prints, illustrated stationery, accessories and gifts, all designed by me, with the supervision of my two adopted pugs, Betty and Buddy.
The story of The Black Pug Press began in 2016, when my desire to rekindle my love of drawing and creating led me to lino print. Instantly hooked by the excitement of pulling that first print, I never looked back, developing a range of prints and later dabbling in digital illustration.
My designs are often inspired by my four legged friends and our outdoor adventures on the stunning coastal and moorland South West coast paths. My love for wild swimming, the sea, and all things nautical also heavily influences my work.
I care deeply about the environment so every hand printed design is made using water based inks; I strive to keep packaging and plastic to a minimum, using recycled materials where possible.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you stick around to see what new and exciting plans I have for this little creative business of mine!
