I'm an artist, surfer & all around creator. I like simple, natural things with texture & a feeling of history. My brand Chapman at Sea came about because I needed some surfboard bags for myself & couldn't find any to fit my style. My first board bag was sewn in the summer of 2012 and I haven't stopped sewing since.

All of my creations are made with function & durability in mind. I believe good design doesn't just look pretty, it creates solutions to problems & serves a functional purpose. Also if something is going to have a sense of history, it has to last a long time. So my bags make use of high end, traditional methods of construction - the kind not usually seen in mass produced things.

Much of my inspiration comes right from nature, the ocean specifically, and of course surf and skate culture. I’m also really into old Florida style things, tacky palm tree…

Much of my inspiration comes right from nature, the ocean specifically, and of course surf and skate culture. I’m also really into old Florida style things, tacky palm tree patterns, tropical prints… Maybe because those are also very literally nature-inspired and because they’re an homage to Florida, where I live.

In addition to creating with textiles, I'm an artist & illustrator and a lot of the time my designs will make their way onto my fabric creations. When I'm not making things you can find me at the beach, surfing, diving or just soaking in the beauty.
