Thank you so much for nosing around our shop and supporting our work. Small Door Studio is the creative lab of artists/ curators Els Borghart and Declan Kelly. We work between Ireland and Belgium. The Small Door Studio shop sells our original and hand-crafted prints. We are so passionate about our art that we really want to make it accessible to anyone else who also loves our work. This encouraged us to set up this print shop. We hope you like it as much as we love making the work. Feel like buying something special for your house, office or maybe a present for a loved one?
