Hi, I am Marie Le Moal , a printmaker and surface pattern designer based in the South of France.
My favourite medium is blockprinting, and carve tiny stamps I then combine to create patterns and placements.
I spend my time between Marseille and the French Alps, and frankly can’t decide wether I prefer the sea or the mountains.
I love creating artwork which is between modern and evergreen and designs that you don’t get tired of. I carve and write by hand every element you will see in my collections.
I am the happiest when combining the vintage, inky texture of handcarved stamps with calligraphy or handlettering to illustrate meaningfull or fun messages. To complement them, I also work build coordinating seamless patterns which preserve the imperfection and uniqueness of the block printing process.
I also create and sell originals which are blockprinted on vintage papers, such as old book pages and music sheets.
