Meet the Author

"Color and pattern are my obsessions, and playing with them in different mediums leads to a stimulating life." Kaffe Fassett enjoys worldwide artistic recognition for his visionary, organic and instinctive uses of color and pattern inspired by centuries of decorative arts and the compelling world of nature. He is the first textile designer to be given a one-person show at both the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. He also is a leading fabric designer for Rowan Patchwork and Quilting and the leading knitwear designer for Rowan Yarns.
