Spirit of the Ship by Alice Pattullo

Alice Pattullo is the newest addition to Soma. She is an illustrator and printmaker based in London. Alice graduated in 2010 with a First Class Honours in Illustration from Brighton University.

Alice works predominantly in screen print producing limited edition prints for sale in various outlets across the UK and online. Research is at the heart of her practice and her work is often inspired by British folk tradition and superstition, 1930s American musicals and celebrity culture to name a few! She is inspired by mid-century design and strives to create a nostalgic aesthetic in her own work through colour choices and composition.

New Artist: Hazel Nicholls


Hazel Nicholls is one of our latest additions to the Soma artist lineup. She joined us at Pick Me Up where her screenprints proved very popular. The fluro pink Russian Doll print below was probably the most photographed piece on our stand!

Hazel Nicholls is 31 and lives in South East London. Thirteen years ago she moved from Northern Ireland to attend Camberwell College of Arts. She left Camberwell with a degree in Illustration. Hazel loves Real Ale, the seaside, ten pin bowling and of course a good pun. Her work is mostly influenced by a longstanding love of cross stitch and an interest in old phrases. Her designs have found themselves on limited edition prints, ceramics, textiles, packaging and more recently a giant fibre glass egg (as part of the Faberge Big Egg Hunt, 2012). She learnt how to screenprint four years ago and she hasn’t looked back since.


You can view all items by Hazel on our website here including silkscreen prints, tea towels and tape.

Rob Ryan Valentines Print 2013

Rob Ryan Valentines 2013 print

Rob Ryan has created a beautiful silkscreen print for Valentines, as he does every year. This years print titled 'There is Only Time' depicts a man and woman on a hill with a clock.

The text reads:

"There is no such thing as free time.
There is no such thing as work time.
There is no such thing as play time.
There is no such thing as spare time.
There is no such thing as the right time.
There is no such thing as down time.
There is no such thing as quality time.
There is no such thing as the wrong time.

"There is only time.

"The rarest and most precious gift I can give you seems to be the one thing I never have enough of to spare, but I promise to give you as much as I have and will make even more + more to give you. Can these seconds and minutes slowly grow into hours and days and perhaps weeks, months and years?In the name of St. Valentine can you be mine? 14th February 2013."

Rob Ryan Valentines 2013 print

This beautiful print is signed and numbered in an edition of 100, paper size 68.5cm high x 51cm wide with print size 47cm high x 33.5 cm wide and priced at £150 unframed.

We are able to frame this print for customers coming into our gallery. Unfortunately we are unable to post this print framed as it is too large.
