What is linocut?
Linocut is a block printing technique, in which a piece of linoleum (solidified linseed oil) is carved into a stamp, inked, and pressed against surface such as paper or fabric. The entire process is carried out by hand.
On this website you’ll find some recent works by me, linocut artist and designer, Maarit Hänninen. You’ll also find more information about my printmaking process, including videos of my process, list of the tools that I use, and my printmaking tips for beginners.

I am especially in love with the fact that Maarit is committed to delivering an environmentally responsible print. She included a bonus print (card) with a hand written note. Shipping was fast and efficient (International). I am beyond delighted with my purchase of "Eden"
I'm happy with my order! Great piece(s) of art, lovely and carefully packaged. The delivery took longer than expected, but all is well.
When I received the package the first impression was like 'wow how well is this packed!'....when opening it, another nice surprise was the thanks card inside and then I saw the absolutely beautiful prints

My print arrived into the US a little more than a week after purchase. The packaging was incredible. It was a joy to open. It even included a small lithograph with a handwritten note by Maarit. You inspire me, Maarit. Keep up the great work!
I fell in love with this piece of art immediately as it arrived. The delivery was fast. The quality is perfect.
Couldn't be happier with it. Thank you so much!
I am SO pleased with this piece; from the quality of the paper and the print to the design itself and the outstanding attention to detail with the packaging.
Beautiful artwork, perfectly wrapped and the personal touch of the handwritten card makes all the difference. Going to frame both pieces <3 Thank you so much!!!

I absolutely love this print. Cannot wait to hang it. So much love and care goes into these beautiful pieces. Thank you Maarit!
The print came fast, well packaged and looks stunning! Thank you!
Absolutely stunning work and the packaging is just as beautiful as the artwork.
I purchased Eden for my wife as a third anniversary gift. It arrived in the mail promptly, extremely well packaged and delightfully wrapped. My wife is absolutely thrilled with the artwork, having viewed its making on YouTube. The piece is even better in "real life" and we can't wait to get it framed and on display!
Elegant print. I really liked the print quality and excellent packaging for reliable delivery.
Lively dahlia, excellent artistry
Show yourself some love and hang the work of Maarit on your walls. You will have a look on kind of classical beauty every day. They even look prettier in reallife and I am glad, that I got two of her works. The packaging was pretty secure and also the note is a small artwork! Thank you!
The sparrow print I received is beautiful! It arrived quickly for an international shipment and was securely packaged. Thank you!
Beautifully executed Nightingale print on an incredible paper
It looked even better than I’d expected. Love it!
Thank you, Maarit, for your beautiful artwork (Nymph), arrived in best shape due to intelligent packaging. Now framed, looks really good at the chosen place on the wall.
Wonderful piece of art and really caring shipment of the product. Love the print.
I couldn't be happier with my received print "Tomorrow, tomorrow", it is absolutely beautiful. It arrived quickly and very carefully packed for int'l delivery, much appreciated! I took the piece to a professional framer so still have to wait a bit - but I'm ready to give "Tomorrow, tomorrow" a loving home. Thank you Maarit!
