Today we introduce a fabric designer who is truly in love with nature. Jane Shasky finds her inspiration in the beauty outdoors and transfers this onto her fabric designs for Robert Kaufman.
Jane Shasky’s designs have a very special aura. She paints beautifully detailed watercolors celebrating the verdant flowers, plant and bird-life she observes around her home in the USA. Her love of nature can be seen on calendars, greeting cards, home décor, scrapbooking and fabrics of course. She has been working for Robert Kaufman for more than 3 years and created lots of beautiful designs with flowers or fruit.
We carry a couple of Jane Shasky fabrics from the Fresh Strawberry collection. Lots of her other Robert Kaufman collections also revolve around a very special fruit like in Fresh Cherries, Fresh Blueberries, Fresh Cranberries or Fresh Apples. Her love for nature, which is her main inspiration, grew strong since she was a child: “My most cherished early memories are of time spent with my grandmothers, Rose and Viola, surrounded by lilacs and peonies in their country gardens. They planted their love of nature in me like seeds, so throughout my life much of my inspiration has sprouted from that deep connection they showed to me.”
The American designer is currently painting for her line of 2015 calendars. If you want to know more about her work or want to see astonishing photographs of nature, visit Jane Shasky’s blog.
