Prints by the Bay

Prints by the Bay is the printmaking practice of Nicole Purdie, an illustrator and printmaker from Dorset.

She trained in Illustration at the Arts University Bournemouth, spending several years after graduating in 2007 creating murals and art for live events and festivals. Nicole started experimenting with the linocut technique back in 2019, and quickly fell in love with the process. Nicole’s work examines connections between people and place; often dealing with the female experience, her prints explore women’s place in society both historically and presently. Much of her work addresses ideas of nature, climate, and the human connection we have to our environment. By using a strong narrative and unique visual language in her designs, Nicole is able to present ideas in a clear and engaging way for her audience. The printmaker creates all her print work in her home studio in Bridport, Dorset, printing with a Gunning etching press. As well as selling her limited edition prints online, Nicole now has a range of products and clothing printed with her designs, which she is adding to and developing all the time. She has worked on many commercial illustration projects for big name brands, and exhibited around the world.
