Jane Foster's Profile
I am an illustrator living in Totnes, Devon. My two main passions are screen printing and collecting vintage fabrics from the 50s, 60s and 70s. My screen prints start off as ink drawings which are then added to screens for printing. I enjoy the process of drawing free hand and love combining my screen printing with vintage fabrics.
My background was initially in music - I went to music college and then taught for years before realizing that I wasn't actually doing what I really wanted with my life. I took the scary plunge into seeing if I could make a living with my designs and it paid off.I feel incredibly lucky to be able to work from home doing what I love - screen printing, working with fabric and making quirky, odd toys!
I was fortunate to be a 'featured seller' on etsy November 23rd 2011. You can take a look here - http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2011/featured-seller-jane-foster/
