Talent. Style. Girl boss. Its hard to not love Inslee’s work. Her 2017 calendar is already on our holiday shopping lists, and we’re eager to have her work with one of our clients. In case you aren’t familiar, let us introduce you to Inslee.
Inslee Fariss is a New York City based artist and illustrator who creates art for individual clients and large companies alike. Inslee has been sharing her love for fashion illustration since launching her eponymous brand in 2006. What began as a few illustrated stationery designs while she was studying at Washington & Lee University has grown into a full line of watercolor illustrated calendars, figure studies and art prints. Inslee has been commissioned by the likes of Neiman Marcus, Nautical, Lela Rose, Jack Rogers, The Huffington Post, Moda Operandi, Shiseido, JCPenny, Leontine Linens, Elizabeth Arden and many other wonderful clients.
As mentioned above, Inslee kicks off the holiday season with the launch of her calendar series! The 2017 edition marks
the eleventh year of Inslee Calendars. This year Inslee is offering the Classic Calendar, featuring fashion illustrations, the Natural Curiosities Calendar, featuring botanicals and natural objects and the new Figure Studies Calendar featuring watercolor renderings of the female form. Each 6×6″ desktop calendar includes twelve illustrated month pages, is hot foil stamped to create a letterpress effect, and comes with a lacquered brass stand nestled inside a linen gift box.
Inslee enjoys working with brides to create original artwork for their wedding suite. She creates custom illustrations that are meaningful to the couple, which can then be implemented in the save the dates, envelope liners, invitations, menu, program, gift bags, etc. Her custom pieces are often the starting point for the whole wedding design… which makes us so anxious to work with her at some point! Check out her work and get inspired!
