Mabel Fox - Kristina Owl
Mabel Fox is the creation of artist Katherine Farrell, who works solely in the labour intensive medium of hand carved original linocut prints. Inspired by Scandinavian design and folk imagery, she originally created the series of woodland animal and creatures to entertain her family members, whom the animals are all named after. She has also created a series of prints based on the beetle, Panagaeus Crux Major - a rare insect discovered by Charles Darwin during his time in Cambridge.
Katherine uses eco-friendly techniques and water based ink to create her prints, which are all printed by hand in her home studio, rather than by press, making her work a fascinating mix of contemporary design, folk tales and ancient print making.
Mabel Fox prints are all hand signed limited editions, but each print is unique due to the process and you can expect to find varieties of colour, texture and pattern on every work. The Art Hound Gallery is currently the sole physical stockist of Mabel Fox.
