If you've ever shopped in Anthropologie's homeware section, chances are you've picked up a piece adorned with Nathalie Lete's charming art.
Nathalie Lete was born in 1964 in France to a German mother and a Japanese father. She studied fashion design at the Arts Appliques Duperre and lithography at the Beaux-Arts de Paris. For the past 30 years, she has mixed different techniques and mediums in creating her art: paintings, ceramics, and textiles. She designs homeware items and creates commissioned art for many brands worldwide. Throughout her career, she has held independent exhibitions in Korea, China, Japan, the United States, France, Germany, and England, among other places. In 2015, a retrospective exhibition of her work was held at the Musee de la Piscine in Roubaix, France. She lives and works in Paris.
"Who needs Prozac if you have In the Garden of My Dreams? Lete's bright, folk art-like paintings of animals, children, flowers, and much more are quite the antidote for the winter blues."--Kirkus Reviews
