I’m Alexandra Snowdon, a hand lettering artist, illustrator and printmaker. I make and sell hand lettered prints and cards from my home studio in Edinburgh, UK. I mainly use pen and ink and linocut prints to produce my designs. I love the handmade textures that printmaking and pen and ink create. 

Originally from Manchester, I came to Edinburgh to celebrate my 50th birthday a couple of years ago, fell in love with the city and moved up here seven months later. I’ve travelled all over the world and Edinburgh is right up there among my favourite cities. It’s an amazing place to live. I love the culture, the architecture, the beaches and countryside and the friendly people.
