This is the first deck chair I ever printed. After finishing my degree in Contemporary Crafts (that course doesn’t exist anymore) I spent some time living in Cornwall, making automata.
I would collect old tins and adapt them into moving sculptures. It was brilliant fun and involved screenprinting onto metals.
Then for some reason (I don’t remember) I moved onto illustrating and printing textiles, despite not training as an illustrator or a textile designer!
I’d like to say it all went from there but to be honest I ended up working in a pub and trying to find space in my brain to be creative.
10 years later I’m running my own business and still producing screen printed deck chairs. I do miss Cornwall though ☀️
