Shayla's story

I am a southern gal born and raised on Florida's coast, shaped as a product designer in Atlanta, trained as an artist in Chicago and serving as a maker and textile designer in Detroit with a heart for historic preservation in the city. I am also owner and designer of Scarlet Crane Creations, which reflect much of the built spaces and ideas that matter in our everyday lives with home goods and accessories that include hand-lettering, modern illustrations and pattern design.

Since moving to the Detroit area, I have fallen in love with its architectural gems, and having studied architecture and working in the field of Industrial Design, I appreciate the city’s historic landmarks. Much of my work reflects this. One of the most popular items sold in my retail store is a tea towel featuring my “Detroit Landmarks” illustration as a 2-color screen print. This led me to seek out ways to expand the line into products that could be elegantly integrated into any lifestyle.

This loan is special because:

It will increase production of these handmade accessories highlighting Detroit's beauty.
