INSPIRED BY NATURE
I am Holly Wardale, founder of CraftyBun Studio. I am a professional printmaker with over 10 years of experience. I specialise in printmaking techniques such as collagraph, woodcut, linocut & drypoint. I love how much texture you can get from different printing techniques and the unpredictable nature of the process that you can never fully control.
I have always been inspired by nature and animals which feature regularly in my work. I have also done prints inspired by the fantastic architecture of the Midlands and one of my best sellers is the ‘Best of the Jewellery Quarter’ collagraph print.
I am also a workshop provider with several years of teaching experience. I run regular printmaking courses around the Midlands with community groups of all ages.
"It is beautiful, Holly. You've caught Archer's character perfectly."
"I bought my partner a Birthday print of our dogs and it was awesome!"
"Crafty Bun's Holly created a wonderful portrait of our beloved late dog Alfie. When she revealed the finished piece it literally bought me to tears. It is wonderful and hangs in our lounge. We have also purchased other portraits and greetings cards which are excellent. We love her work and can highly recommend Holly and her talent. Thank you Holly. We are very happy returning customers."

"Even though our old rescue cat, Pearl, died back in 2013 at the grand old age of 18, CraftyBun's collagraph of her brings her back in a second. It really captures her in a totally content moment, so much so that I can almost hear her purr. Thanks to CraftyBun for capturing such a lovely memory!"
