Cloth and Ink

I appreciate a good artist just as much as I appreciate a good photograph of their work. Helen Peterson of Houston, Texas and Etsy shop, Cloth and Ink, creates original illustrations for primarily organic and recycled fabrics. The end result is simply beautiful table runners, lampshades and pillows.

Much care is placed into each product that passes through Helen's hands. For these modern lamp shades Helen explains, "I screen printed the design by hand using eco friendly inks." Much of her work is inspired by the outside world which include beaches, fields and mountains. Click here to see all her lamp shade designs and here for her eco printed pillows.

I like the quirkiness of this design Helen calls, Toy Box. As she explains, it showcases the "tumble of toys tossed in a child's toy box after a day of play."

Helen certainly has a passion for textiles. As she shared, "My love of fabrics began at a young age from hanging out in my grandma's fabric store and playing mannequin for my mum, who was always sewing something." See her entire repertoire of pretty goods at her Etsy shop.
