yay retro! love Jane Foster's Designs!
A few years ago, we bought some original screen prints from Jane Foster, after a printmaker friend sent us a link to her website. We fell in love with Jane's bold minimal designs, and had an inkling we had found a kindred lover of Dick Bruna's artwork.
Jane's work is created via screen printing, after a design is hand drawn. The resulting prints could appear on paper for framing, a bag, cushion cover, a tea towel or a greetings card!
Jane actually trained as a musician and only had a career change to art and design fairly recently. She studied the violin and piano at music college and then went on to teach for years until she noticed her heart was no longer in it. Luckily she discovered a place she could screen print and the rest is history!
Jane loves any ceramics with bright, colourful designs, especially Scandinavian ones and those from the 50s, 60s and 70s. In fact Jane was one of yay retro!'s first customers when she purchased a Scandi style preserve pot from us :O) Now Jane tells us her favourite item in the yay retro! shop is our Scandi style Staffordshire Pottery tea set:
