Inkling Prints

Kiran Ravilious is the lady behind the UK based Inkling prints. I have admired her hand painted designs for some time now. I love the elegance and simplicity of her designs. I am delighted today to be featuring Kiran's lovely designs on My Dream Canvas. Here is the story of Inkling prints in Kiran's own words........

"I live in the UK with my husband, our two daughters and our dog. I am originally from Singapore, but moved here 7 years ago. I trained as a graphic designer, but I've always been interested in printmaking. I started printing on fabric 2 years ago. I took a break to have my baby and now I've started printing again.
About my work: I carve my design on to a piece of linoleum. I then ink the design up and print it on to fabric. My designs are bold and intricate, but also simple. I print them mostly on natural linen. All my work is done in my studio in my garden. I'm very influenced by flowers and plants."

Make sure you check out Kiran's Etsy shop for her gorgeous new designs. She is also a fellow blogger, and you can read her daily musings at http://blog.inklingprints.co.uk/

Those pillows are so unique! They could fit into any decor, I love them.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment. I am so happy to find your blog, I love finding people from Washington state. I have spent a lot of time on the coast, I was born near Hoquiam, WA and often blog about the coast on Watery Wednesdays. It has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world, IMHO.
Hugs, Cindy
