I‘ve always been drawn to bold colours, strong patterns and making things, even from a young age. Early in my career I studied graphic design and have worked as a designer in the industry for many years.


My fascination with block printing came about in lock down when I stumbled across a trove of vintage hand-carved Indian wood blocks.
I was soon inking up blocks and trying out my very first prints.


I was hooked. I loved the combination of craft, creativity and mindfulness. From here I attended every workshop, course and fair
that I could. I learnt about the history of block printing, tried out new techniques and picked up lots of ideas along the way.


This inspired me to start Hello Tinka as a way of helping other people get into block printing and experience the same enjoyment.
