Nathalie Lete

Nathalie Lete has great things going for her - she creates wonderful art, showcases a stunning collection of plates and bedding at Anthropologie, and lives and works in Paris. So, how does she do it all? Nathalie works in many ways, mixing different techniques and mediums like illustration, ceramics, textile and painting. She gains inspiration from traveling, vintage toys and old engravings of flowers and animals. Put this all together and you have a perfect mix of colorful, poetic and artistic mastery.

Nathalie's work touches my creative spirit. Her work inspires me to approach art with a spontaneous and playful creative process. She is also a great example of an artist with a distinct style that translates into many different mediums. Do you see a similarity in each plate, rug and graphic?

I have been a fan of hers for some time. She used to do amazing oversized coloring books that I hated to even give to the kids! Such a talent.
