How did Printspace® start?
A shared enthusiasm for creating art sparked the beginning of Printspace®. Both Mara and Nicholas knew having a studio and creating was a big part of their future. Mara took time off work to have their 2 beautiful boys and during that time Printspace® began. After a few false starts with the artistic materials and methods, some scratching of the head, grinding of the teeth and occasional frowning, they decided to stick at it and press onward and upward. Printspace® has grown since 2008 from the support of the people around Nicholas and Mara and for some time it has had an energy of it's own.
Printspace® began from purely an investment of time and enthusiasm from the artists. Attending hundreds of markets and developing original ideas for art prints. Printspace® is for people who prefer the very best in artistic merit, in material quality and in originality of thought. We do not cut corners and we do not select the cheapest materials. You are dealing with the artists directly and our integrity is connected to every piece of precious art which leaves our studio. When you call, it is a creative who answers the telephone.
Both have collected bits and pieces over the years and created scrap books which reflected their personal artistic interests and colours. The other guiding light is their attraction to modernist architecture, commercial art and illustration in the late 50's and early 60's.
About the Art
