Author(s): Lotta Jansdotter
This is a paperback journal featuring the lush, organic art of Lotta Jansdotter.
Lotta Jansdotter draws her inspiration from shape and color in both nature and her urban surroundings. Bold patterns and motifs reflect her Scandinavian heritage. Intuitively designed, her work is organic, free and elegant. Color is fundamental to her work. By mixing her own inks, she creates a palette that is simple yet sophisticated and playful. Lotta moved to California in 1991 from Sweden where she grew up. Always attracted to pattern, she began to explore textile design after she discovered screenprinting. Shortly after moving to San Francisco, she started her company, Lotta Jansdotter, and began producing hand-screened designs for the home. (Website: www.jansdotter.com) Lotta Jansdotter has expanded her line of home accessories to include stationery, cushions, handbags, ceramics, and table linens. Her products are now available in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Tokyo. Lotta's Life Style was released in Japan in Fall 02. Lotta has recently relocated from San Francisco to Brooklyn.
