Introducing (better) Mizu Designs

I already technically introduced Mizu Designs last post as one of the Lovely Blogs. But I wanted to take some time to really show what its creator has to show.
Kylie is an Aussie printmaker and illustrator, but studied in Japan where she lived for seven years - her work is suitably inspired by her asian roots.
Using the traditional Japanese method of printmaking Kylie makes her woodblock prints with watercolour inks, beautiful Japanese paper, a bamboo leaf covered baren (no press!), and traditional carving tools. Here are some examples of her work:

Three Pots of Tea

Falling for Kozuki


Dragonflies are brown
