Every Saturday I focus on a different artist that I admire. From potters to painters, chefs to collectors, seamstress to songwriters, lifestyle to lovers... anyone who set the paintbrush, pastry brush, hands and heart on fire to create.
Those who inspire art to flow where it may...
Kathe Fraga, artist, painter... creator of wonderful old fashion wallpapers.

"Kathe Fraga creates her paintings with acrylic, ink, graphite, and plaster on canvas. Each painting is finished with lacquered look."
"Kathe’s art is inspired by the beauty and romance of old: vintage silky kimonos, hand-worked embroidery, lacquered little boxes, blocked wallpaper and panels from years ago, distressed with age, revealing a soft loveliness still…you’ll see layered colors peeking out behind one another—pinks, blues, lavender—speckles of gold, a wisp of glitter. Look for a small shy heart. A nestle of lovebirds. A French phrase. Each piece meant to be seen as part of a larger scene that’s been hidden away…until
The influence of time spent by the artist living in the beautiful old cities of South America, Denmark, England, and France can be clearly felt."
