10 Questions | Geninne D Zlatkis

Just last week we received some glorious sample yardage of Alegria so now seems like a great time to share our 10 Questions with artist Geninne. Her well-anticipated collection Alegria is due to hit stores in a matter of weeks – look for it by mid-April.

It has been a genuine privilege to work with Geninne. Her talent is awe-inspiring and she is every bit as sweet as you can imagine with work as delightful as hers. To be able to say we helped bring this to life in fabric is truly an honor.

Where were you born?
I was born in Long Island, NY.

Where are you living today and what brought you here?
I’m living in a colonial city in central Mexico called Queretaro. We came here because of the beautiful weather and the spectacular semi-desert.

Pyrography in the 4rd grade! We were living in Brazil at the time and we decorated a little wooden box and a photo frame at school using a wire nib burner.

A prestigious art museum will give you any piece in their collection- which would you choose?
“Jimson Weed” by Georgia O’Keeffe. My husband Manolo drove me all the way from Mexico City to Santa Fe, NM. so I could see that painting in person at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum.

Introducing | Alegria by Geninne D. Zlatkis

Alegria means happiness in Spanish.

We could almost stop there with our description of this long-anticipated collection from the talented Geninne.

But we won’t. We can’t!

It is such an honor to be working with Geninne. As you may well imagine, if you’re at all familiar with the depth of her work, it was no small feat to narrow a range down to a small handful. However, we’re quite pleased with our assortment and we hope you will be filled with alegria too!

This range will be printed on our price sensitive, 100% certified organic cotton base cloth and we anticipate delivery early January or February of 2012 for a spring delivery. So, get your own sketch books out and start dreaming about the glorious projects you can make from these rich and colorful images.

If you’re unfamiliar with Geninne’s work, please do take a moment and treat yourself to an eye full of wonder on her blog!

Last, but not least, we would like to wish Geninne a very, very happy birthday! We are happy we could arrange things so that this reveal took place on her special day.
