Amy Schimler

Amy Schimler has been designing fabrics for Robert Kaufman for more than 5 years now. She has a traditional background studying painting and fiber arts, followed by textile design classes. At the beginning of her career she even started out painting all of her designs in gouache before she switched to working digitally.

“Creatures and Critters 2” is her latest collection she did for Robert Kaufman. We carry most of these fun designs with funny dogs, cats, bunnies, flowers and more. Besides that you’ll also find Amy Schimler fabrics from “Forest Fun” and “Fly Away” on modes4u.com. Also here, animals such as owls, birds and butterflies play an essential role. Amy just enjoys them: “Color gets me started with most of my designs – and I love to draw animals.”

You might have seen her designs on children’s and women’s clothing. She also works as an illustrator and does a lot of work for children’s publishing and the stationery market. The variety of her tasks is what excites her: “I love my job, each year the focus changes a little bit and I am always a little surprised to see what creations I come up with.” Amy Schimler lives with her family outside Atlanta, Georgia.

On Amy Schimler’s blog you’ll find much more information about her work and can also see lots of products sewn with her products.
