Painting by Swapna Augustine. She was born in Kerala, without both her arms. However, even as a child, she made a habit of performing all tasks, including painting and drawing, with her feet. As her talent for art was soon discovered, her parents and teachers gave her the necessary support & encouragement to continue painting when she was only a schoolgirl. Her paintings were published in student's newsletters & youth magazines. Swapna has participated in several group exhibitions in India.

European folk art and was pleasantly surprise to discover the work of UK illustrator, Karoline Rerrie. This awesome series of folk art inspired designs was created using drawing, painting, silk screen printing and Japanese Gocco printing. These prints would certainly brighten any room.
