From Sidewalk Stencils to Water Based Screen Printing
After a cross country search for something different than humidity, skeeters, gators and kudzu, I landed in Los Angeles, found a job and a roach infested apartment. Whilst working this unfulfilling job, I began to take my art to the street. And the sidewalks.
After many requests for these stencils as shirts, I started spraying them on American Apparel tees and so began my Press & Stitchery.
With the theft of my bike, my lovely little car, my naivety, and anything not bolted down, I decided to leave the city and head north. The money I saved in rent paid for my screen printing press and I took to printing full time. I started my Etsy shop, taking part time jobs until 2010. Now, I am fully sustained with Etsy orders and the many boutiques that carry my wares across the country.
Steering clear of sweatshops, I print my American Apparel shirts with eco friendly water based ink using traditional methods to ensure fair wages for workers and comfort for you body and conscience. Over the years, I have listened to customers and now accommodate other brands and items, but I always strive for social responsibility in my offerings.
It's been a long and trying journey, but fulfilling throughout. I love running into strangers wearing my shirts, ties and cardigans. I love the people who come to craft fairs just for my booth. And I love supporting myself with art.
