Meet The Artist: Kaffe Fassett

Kaffe Fassett was born in San Francisco in 1937. When he was 19, Kaffe won a scholarship to the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston, but left after 3 months to paint in London. He settled in England in 1964.

His bright, colorful textiles, needlepoints and quilts are filled with riotous colors, patterns – a little vintage, a little modern, a whole lot of fun.

  1. Wow…your article prompted wonderful memories of rediscovering knitting back in the late 80’s primarily because of the influence of Kaffe Fassett. “Glorious Knits,” published in 1985, beautifully depicts his amazing sense of color and design.

  2. Thanks for sharing another great bit of information. I’ve admired Fassett’s work but did not know his name. I’m going to have to pick up his books. His patterns and colors are so vibrant and invigorating they seem to have an energy of their own.
    Very Nice

  3. Love all this color. Makes me feel very happy! I definitely need, like, ten houses to do all the looks I’d love to do, like this one, lots of color.

  4. I had seen the name, but hadn’t put all the products together in my head, nor did I realize that Kaffe was a real person. Another example of how much I learn as a blogger!

    And Susan, I agree – I want several different houses so I can decorate each one differently!
