Announcement   I am an artist, illustrator and designer, my studio is located in beautiful Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA.

• Hand printing textiles is a process I love – beginning with a rough design on paper and ending with a carefully created work of art. Inspiration is drawn from many places, however I design, cut blocks for printing, print and finish in my studio.

Fabric block printed by hand will have some variations in ink saturation and design registration, which is part of its charm.

I mix textile ink colors by hand from primary and secondary hues, white and black. The inks are water based, solvent free. Textile inks are highly saturated in pigment but are not opaque, therefore colors are affected by the color of the ground fabric.

Since my process lends itself easily to custom colorways and designs I am happy to collaborate on individual projects and match custom colors.

• Giclée prints are professionally scanned and printed from my original artwork, using archival inks and papers. The final prints are extremely true to the original in color and detail.

All designs, art and images are ©Jane Forrester 2009 - 2018, all rights reserved.

About

Creating designs, cutting blocks, printing and producing unique fabric is a passion; it is very rewarding, very challenging and… fun!

Fabric block printed by hand - from start to finish - is truly a hands on, handmade process: designing, cutting blocks, mixing textile inks, printing and heat setting the fabric. My studio is located in beautiful Lancaster County, PA, USA.

Fabric block printed by hand will have some variations in ink saturation and design registration, which is part of its charm, part of what I love about it.
