This year many artists like myself have found the effects of Covid had a devastating effect on our careers. Much of my freelance work and ArtFairs were cancelled, leaving me wondering what to do.
On a positive note it did actually give me more time time in the studio, and from this I began to create a range of prints and patterns using paint and paper-cutting, at that point I realised that I could paint- then effectively scan and print my own wearable art, technology hey?
I love Yoga and Dancing and basically anything that involves bright and comfortable clothes so I set about setting up a small Collection of my favourite designs . These began to get interest from friends and fellow Yoga enthusiasts, Ta Dah! BomBette is born.
BomBette is my new collaborative textile 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 Seamtress to come up with an original pattern, we use 100% organic fabric and they are truly lovely to wear.
Since caring for the enviroment is important to me , BomBette products are made to order. I don't hold stock or over produce what is not needed, we area little Company and my head office is still a garden studio! It does mean I can put the kettle on whenever I fancy though.
