There seems to be a lot going on lately. Drawing and painting are a huge part of my life, but there's also another side to it, namely Chapman at Sea, the surfboard bag and seaworthy goods company that I run, design and produce products for.
While generally this site is for art, when something really notable happens with Chapman at Sea, it'll get a mention here as well and that's just what happen recently. Anna Magazine, all the way from Japan, came to visit my shop. We talked about bag making, what surfing is like in different parts of the world, and just generally had a nice time visiting.
The interview and photos can be found in the 2016 autumn issue. My shop is in my home and is generally kept pretty private, so this is a unique look into that. It was also nice that my husband Joe got to be included as well. Although I do the bulk of the work with Chapman at Sea, without Joe a number of our products wouldn't even exist (handplanes, dog leashes) and it was good to have him along.
