Folk Art


Re-discovered the folksy work of British illustrator Natasha Newton this week. She has been working on some new designs for her Etsy store where she sells small accessories. I love these mid-century-esque decorative beach pebbles and pottery shards hand-painted with acrylic ink.They would look lovely scattered amongst indoor plants or to weigh down random paperwork.
