Handmade block prints by
On this website you’ll find the recent works by me, artist and linocut printmaker, Maarit Hänninen.
WHAT IS LINOCUT PRINTMAKING?
Linocut is an artistic block printing technique, in which a hand-carved piece of linoleum (solidified linseed oil) is inked and stamped against another surface, such as paper or fabric, in order to create an imprint of the carved design. The process is carried out by hand, and as such all of the resulting artworks are unique.
You can watch a video of my process here.

I love how responsive and willing the artist was to print this for me and other fellow print lovers. It’s so delicately beautiful and I love the contrast between black and gold. Beautiful statement piece for my living room.
This lino is amazing, my girlfriend love this gift ! More détails and very good ink work
Amazing, detailed print, boxed/wrapped secure and wonderful. Great attention to every part of the process. Cannot wait to have the piece framed.
I love this print, the gold looks so beautiful against the black paper. I had seen this print on Instagram but it was out of stock when I went on the website, I emailed the owner and she was so helpful and emailed when it was back in stock, amazing customer service to go with the most beautiful art
Breathtaking piece to go in my collection, so excited! Thank you for the extras as well! <3

I love my linoprint, the details are beautiful, the packaging was perfect ! Thank you very much for the small linoprint and your words on the back, I'll definitely order again on this shop !
I just received my Naja prints, and they are beautiful. The prints were sent in a very safe package. I am very happy with my purchase. Thank you Maarit!
Maarit's prints are beautiful pieces of art in their own right, but the thought that's gone into the packaging, and Maarit's kind words and caring service make it feel like you are buying something extra special. That love will certainly be passed on with this gift at Christmas, thank you Maarit.
Definitely packaged and shipped with love! Absolutely beautiful work, looking forward to seeing new pieces!
"Eden" - gold
Beginning with careful and thoughtful packaging, this piece arrived safe and sound. As stunning as I had hoped. The paper and print were a gorgeous combination and a very welcome addition to my home. Thank you so very much. 😊❤
The print is stunning! The gold is so beautiful with the light background, and it will look great in my home. The shipping was fast and the print was safely packaged. Plus my order included a very cute mini print as a thank you— 5 stars in every way!
Marrit’s work is absolutely beautiful! The prints I ordered were so lovingly and carefully packaged for their long journey to me. I can’t wait to display them in my home!
Yesterday I received my print. There are no words to describe how beautiful it is. My mum will be thrilled when she receives it for Christmas. It's so simply stunning I will get one to hang on my wall in the not too distant future. I highly recommended Maarit's art.
From the packaging to the thank you note, a lot of thought, effort and care is put into every step and I am beyond happy with it. The detail and colour is incredible, it’s a great addition to our home. Thank you Maarit!
Bought this as a gift to a friend and she absolutely adored it. It arrived to California completely undamaged. We love it!
Before I even opened my print I was already impressed with the attention to detail Maarit had taken when packaging my order (you will be too) along with a hand printed/hand written thankyou note.
The print itself, stunning! I instantly saw the quality and time put into her work. Buying artwork from Maarit has felt both personal and authentic! There is something special about having a beautiful handcrafted print made with care. Thankyou!
Maarit is unbelievable :) Excellent art, greate craftsmanship, extraordinary packaging. Just wow! I'll be back :)
The print arrived so quickly (I live in Canada) and the packaging is a work of art in itself. Absolutely enjoyed the unboxing experience and appreciate the mini print + personalized note. Swooning over the thoughtfulness in everything Maarit does; it really says a lot about her as an artist and person. High quality product + high quality service. I'm now a bigger fan and definitely purchasing again in the future. Thanks M! x
Incredibly beautiful print on high-quality paper ♡ Also I looved the packaging and the personal thank you card.
Thank you Maarit x
The print arrived safely in a beautiful and thoughtful package after just a couple of days. It looks absolutely stunning and it makes me happy every time I see it. I will definitely buy another print in the future.
The quality of the paper, nice website, a pretty thanknote, the perfectness of the print, and the 22seconds PayPal ordering process... I got nothing more to say... everything is absolutely perfect
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
Amazing print amazing paper and such detail to packaging to arrive safe and pretty! Thank you!
Artwork was beautifully packed and secured. Love the art! Perfect :)

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!
