What's it called when two very talented people meet at an art show, play with some new ideas and inspire one another to push their personal boundaries as artists? Eric and Christopher!
Two guy's who are pushing, pulling and printing their way into the hearts and homes of customers falling for their refreshing take on classic American rural imagery with their new line of screen printed home decor pillows, totes and stretched canvases.
Meet the masterminds behind the camera, the screen printer and the sewing machine!
|Chris Kline screen printing.
Christopher Kline is an oil painter, founder of Kanika ( a printmaking business he started in high school where he printed t-shirts for local bands and businesses) and, the creator of the art show titled" Push Pull Print" ( 2011). The show would invite 20 artists who had no experience with screen printing to convert their works into screen prints with his help with the idea that all twenty artists would showcase their finished pieces in a show. Eric was one of those first 20 artists.

Eric Fausnacht is an award winning, exhibiting artist who shows his original works of art both locally (Bucks County, PA) and nationally. He creates colorful hand painted and giclee prints from photos he has taken of classic barn animals such as hens, horses, cows, sheep, roosters, goats and rabbits.
It's been two and a half years since they began their creative collaboration and my how they've grown. Their products are now in over 300 small boutique shops and retail outlets throughout the world and, I'm told they are working with several high-end online retailers such as Pine Cone Hill and the Fabulous Beekman Boys. Woot! Woot!
