Hello! I'm Fiona Biddington, the designer behind PaperArgonauts and everything you see is designed, illustrated and made by me in sunny Yorkshire. I am passionate about traditional hand screen printing which is extremely labour intensive but produces beautiful unique art that makes your heart sing. No two pieces are ever quite the same, adding that extra special something to every print I make.


I am influenced by all sorts of delights, but have a particular passion for English folklore, traditions and medieval iconography. Tokens of affection, love and positivity are the golden thread running through all that I do, creating thoughtful, curious objects perfect for gifting.


Using a mixture of traditional screen printing, hand painting, embroidery and gold leaf I create unique, playful keepsakes on paper and plywood. Sustainable, eco-friendly and recycled materials are always first choice and great care is taken to ensure high quality, heirloom items are made, filled with love and ready to bring joy and happiness to you and yours.


So step into my curious world and discover love tokens inspired by those sailors carved during months on the seven seas, origami valentines letters based on 18th century origami puzzle purses and embroidered wall art reminiscent of World War One pin cushion sets.  Come on in and explore!


My work is sold in specialist design shops, Print Fairs and in my online shop. 

Past clients include Greenpeace, WRAP magazine, Cicada books, Anorak Magazine, and SMUG print shop.
