This year, many artists like myself found the effects of the Covid pandemic to have a devastating effect on our careers. Much of my freelance work and events have been cancelled, leaving me wondering what to do.
On a positive note, it did give me more creative time in the studio, and from this I began to create a range of prints and patterns using paint and paper-cutting techniques. At this point I realised that I could paint- then effectively scan and print my own wearable art, technology hey?
Generally I love Yoga, dancing, and basically anything that involves bright and enjoyable clothes, so I set about creating a small collection of my favourite designs made in my studio . These began to get interest from friends and fellow Yoga enthusiasts, Ta-Dah! BomBette is born.
BomBette is my new collaborative print off-shoot. I create many of the prints myself but I also work with other Artists, we help each other to stay working as artist by doing what we do best, Art.
I also have a love for Jumpsuits and since I was producing my own small batch prints I joined forces with a local dress designer to come up with an original pattern, we use 100% organic fabric and they are truly lovely to wear.
Since being aware about the environment is important to me , BomBette products are made to order.
I don't hold stock or over produce what is not needed, we are a little Company and my head office is still a garden studio! The dream is to expand into a studio in which I can collaborate with other artists, and I have lots of plans for the years ahead.
