I am a botanical artist and textile designer. I have been a professional designer in textile world for over 15 years. I have recently returned to doing what I love the most, hand rendered artwork and designs. At my studio,Dishragstudio, I am creating botanical artwork. I do renderings in watercolor, gouache, graphite/pencil silverpoint and hand pulled block prints. I am also creating hand printed eco friendly flour sack tea towels. Each design is from my artwork which I then carve into linoleum blocks.I then hand print with 100% solvent free inks onto flour sack tea towels, cards, tote bags etc. www.dishragstudio.etsy.com Specialize in; Botanical Illustration, hand rendering, gouache, watercolor, pencil,silverpoint.
