Mintprint by Miriam Trent
Miriam’s surface patterns and print designs concentrate on good colour, shape and form. References to the decorative arts from the 1920’s until the 1970’s can be seen in her work. Her stylish, contemporary art prints (monotype, linocut prints and screenprints) function to decorate walls, in home interiors and commercial premises. She has a new range of hand screen printed lampshades and kitchen textiles under her brand Mintprint. www.mintprint.org.
