Here's what Nathalie has to say about Folk Heart, "The collection “Folk Heart” is inspired by my memories I had from my travel in Mexico and Oaxaca in 2020 before pandemic. I visited the wonderful Folk Art museums and was very impressed by the mix of laces, the bright cut paper garland and flowers, the terracotta animals, the hearts motives everywhere, and the colorful textiles and ribbons. I wanted to create joyful patterns with rich, contrasted, colorful images I still had in my mind."
Nathalie Lete was born in 1964. She lives and works in Paris. She works in many ways, mixing different techniques and mediums, illustration, ceramics, textile and painting ... She is inspired by her travels, but also by the mixing of vintage toys and old engravings of flowers and animals. Her work is colourful, naive and poetic, sometimes strange, to the point of tending towards art brut. Her world is nurtured by popular and folk art from her both origins (her Chinese father and her German mother). She produces children's and graphic's books, knitted and stuffed toys, glass pictures, patterned dishes, but also postcards, ceramic sculptures, silkscreen printed t-shirts, rugs and jewels in limited edition ... and also now cotton fabrics!
