Kate Spade 2010 Calendar, featuring the gorgeous paintings of Brooklyn-based Bella Foster. (Alas they do not ship outside of the US. Annoying. )

More of Bella’s lovely work, found on her blog – Here, There and Them. This is the apartment of her friend Josh Blackwell (whose art is pretty awesome in it’s own right).

Bella loves painting bookshelves! This is her own, from her former Bedford apartment and studio.


My love affair with Kate Spade‘s Behind the Curtain website continues. MAN it is so good. It just introduced me to to Brooklyn-based artist Bella Foster, with whom Kate Spade has collaborated for their 2009 Calendar!

Gorgeous heart-warming colourful paintings… in fact the Kate Spade designers love Bella’s work so much they also commissioned illustrations for the new X-ray bag and cosmetics case. Nice work!
