A bit about Scarlett & Valentine

Community led and story inspired

Aprille McShane created Scarlett and Valentine in her mid thirties not long after having her second child as a way of creating illustrations to decorate her family home. Linocut was her first endeavour and her love of printmaking grew over the last 10 plus years.

Aprille started hosting cosy evening linocut printmaking classes which became the much loved Print Social.

Since then Aprille has delivered a whole variety of printmaking workshops big and small including public event celebrations for councils, National Saturday Club and educational establishments. Aprille is an active collaborator with other creatives and associations including, Carousel Print Studio and young people's champion, Create Sheffield.

Aprille’s wide creative output includes illustrating joyful prints for Scarlett and Valentine, with bold colours, nature motifs and playful narrative.
