Anna Ruiz

Explore the sparkling talent of Anna Ruiz. 

Based in Bristol, Anna is a modern-day virtuoso of linocut printmaking. It's an artform both intricate and bold, tracing back to early-1900s New York. Every one of Anna’s linocut prints invites you to relax into a magical world of dreams and possibilities.

In the authentic tradition of linocut printmaking, Anna sculpts her designs into the smooth surface of ink-hungry linoleum. She then presses each carving onto textured paper (often of Japanese origin), using a vintage Victorian-era printing press.

Anna takes inspiration from mythology and spiritual symbolism. She has more than 15 years’ experience as the print designer for an array of fashion brands around the world.
