About the Artist

Samantha Cisneros is the owner, designer,
and lead maker behind Shapes & Colors.
With a background in textile design, product development, and fashion she brought to life a line of modern home decor and accessories that bring thoughtful, happy, slow design into everyday life. Based in San Francisco, California — she draws inspiration from sunsets over the Pacific, the colors of flora from up and down the coast, mid–century modern design ideology, and traditional folk art from around the world. 

When she’s not at the drawing table, covered in ink, or sewing for hours on end — you can find her at browsing the creative non-fiction section at Dog Eared Books, throwing porcelain on the wheel, or experimenting in the studio with dyes and piles of fabric.
