YoungSchmidtPrints - The Paperdolls Discovery

Young Schmidt Prints

Young Schmidt Prints is run by printmaker & illustrator Bailey Schmidt in her home studio in Staffordshire. Each print begins as a sketch that is later transferred onto printmaking lino. The lino is then hand carved, rolled with ink, and hand printed onto archival quality paper. This process means every print is unique, varying in texture and appearance.

Originally from the United States, Bailey is inspired by regional plants from the southwest, as well as tropical houseplants found scattered throughout her workspace. She hopes that a Young Schmidt Prints piece is just the botanical touch your home needs.

Dolly Loves Dallas

Dolly Loves Dallas creates beautiful little paper dolls, bunting and accessories. All the dolls are based on cult icons, female figures and kitsch characters such as Divine, Bette Davis and Lou Reed.

All the dolls are hand illustrated then professionally printed before being cut then pinned with mini brads. The perfect gift for fellow pop culture vultures...
