Katie Rodgers’ Art Evokes the Spirit of The Secret Silk

The adventure, romance and enchantment of Princess Cruises’ third collaboration with composer Stephen Schwartz comes to life in whimsical new artwork created by Katie Rodgers of Paper Fashion.

Rodgers, who collaborated with the show’s creative team from Broadway and beyond to commission the inspiring piece, notes she enjoys “taking a script and seeing where the words take me artistically. ‘The Secret Silk’ has an air of mystery to it which I love to recreate with my paintings." Since childhood, Rodgers has been bringing her imaginations to life through fantastical artwork which effortlessly dances around the tiles of Instagram. Known for her elegant and often animated Shadow Dancers, her work has been commissioned by the likes of Cartier, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Estee Lauder, Perrier Jouet, Disney, Focus Features, Harper's Bazaar, and Swarovski, among others.
