KerrynB Designs

bio profile kerrynb designs

Kerryn Egel (soon to be Butler) is the artist behind KerrynB Designs and the "Nostalgic" fabric collection on The Textile District. Drawing inspiration from nature (especially flowers), Kerryn describes her style as "somewhere between traditional fine art and folksy with a modern edge." As a self-taught landscape and portrait artist, Kerryn evolved from fine art painting to digital designing from her home in Port Lincoln, South Australia.

Patchwork and quilting (one of Kerryn's creative passions) were the original inspiration for fabric design, and now she creates with homewares in mind. We hope you enjoy exploring the "Nostalgic" fabric collection and the four seasons of colorways that are designed to easily mix and match!

Kate Blairstone Designs

bio profile kate blairstone

Kate Blairstone creates from her home studio in Portland, Oregon, where her family, kitchen and garden are always within reach. Her designs are inspired by the abundant plant life of the Pacific Northwest, Portland's culinary scene, and pattern as an expression of identity, heritage and place.

Kate's work reflects the belief that we are deserving of color and pattern in our lives, and that they can be harnessed to tell our stories, create connection, and inspire joy in our homes and communities. Her large scale, organic designs are painted with Indian ink on layers of tissue paper, a process reminiscent of traditional screen printing.
