It’s not been too different for me during this period of lockdown – as an independent surface pattern designer I work pretty remotely and mainly on the end of a p.c. I create time to make my handmade books because it helps me to step away from this obsessive need to create further artwork for uploading to print on demand sites such as Society6 and Redbubble. I have been so grateful for that opportunity to produce work that gets printed and displayed in homes worldwide – always a thrilling reflection. The past year has led me to want to supply to UK outlets too – most of my design work is bought in USA, and it would be lovely to feel they were enjoyed closer to home too. So besides having some of my prints now available locally in a lovely heritage centre – Beeston Canalside – I am working to get a piece of the action at Wraptious who support UK artists to get products made and sold around and about. They have a summer competition which I entered – five of my artworks are available there on cushions and prints, and if I get enough points , I may get invited to be on their books! Everyone loves a trier! You can vote via facebook, or you can share via pinterest etc, and if you are really impressed, you can make a purchase whereby I get 100 points!!
It’s not been my only endeavour – I am looking to upload some work to Spoonflower too – just sampling there at the moment, so it may not be long before I can offer fabric to my customers too. The power of modern technology never ceases to amaze me!
Would you be inclined to pop across to my page at Wraptious and lend a helping hand to my efforts there? Sharing on your facebook page would be great, or to pinterest. Well anyway you like really – I am so grateful for any support!
Hope to see you at Wraptious!! Enjoy the rest of the Summer and stay as safe as possible. If you want a funky face covering you can find my designs on face coverings at Society6 and at Redbubble! Here’ s a link to all my work
