Apart from giving the works of other artists an innovative touch, Svetlana also find the beauty of Nature to be a source of inspiration. Many hand painted silk scarves designed by her carry her own perception of the daintiness of a beautiful flower she might have found in her own garden. While anything can serve as an inspiration for these artists, it is their interpretation and expression on silk scarves that determine the end result. As per Svetlana, it all starts with a flash of inspiration and sooner than you know you are already painting a picture in your mind. Whether you are on the subway or having lunch, the painting keeps building up stroke by stroke, it then becomes impossible to not translate your vision onto a canvas.

Did you know that the only American to design scarves for Hermes was a postman? Kermit Oliver, an employer of the US Postal Services, is one of the most renowned living African-American painters of today. Most of his paintings are humble assimilation of everyday lives on canvas. His works revolve around portrait of children, and farm workers and animals. With feet deeply rooted on the ground, Oliver did not even consider himself to be good enough to be called a painter. However, he did not once let go of his passion for art and the result-apart from a house full of his paintings on every wall- he’s the only American to have his paintings featured on Hermes’ scarves, and not once but 16 times.
