Announcement   The HOOKER Collection ~ Paper patterns for Rug Hooking, Needle Punch,
Wool Appliqué & more

The majority of the time I am designing original one-of-a-kind pieces of Tramp Art as The Art Tramp a.k.a. David A Schump. Like Tramp Art, rug hooking, needle punch and wool appliqué use very simple hand held tools to produce glorious works of art. To me, creating these patterns based on my original Tramp Art designs is the perfect way to introduce my designs into the world of textiles. My mother and grandmother were huge influences on me. My grandmother taught me to sew, cross-stitch, needlepoint, crewel and embroider. My mother taught me about courage and perseverance. All of the Heart In Hand designs are based on a tracing I did of her hand and my unique "cuff" treatment using the layered diamond shapes. I hope you enjoy creating your own works of art using thee patterns. I invite you to take a look at my Tramp Art by visiting my website where you can see all the pieces I have created so far.

Enjoy.

About

Original one-of-a-kind Tramp Art ~ made by my hands to nourish the soul

"The Art Tramp" is a twist on what I create which is called Tramp Art. Tramp art, like quilting, relies on using salvaged materials to create textures and patterns and then piecing them together to make beautiful yet utilitarian objects. While relatively unknown, Tramp Art was a wide-spread form of folk art that flourished in America between the 1870’s – 1940’s.

Using simple tools and cigar boxes or discarded shipping crates the artist would chip-carve and layer wooden shapes and apply them to frames, boxes, sewing caddies and even full-sized furniture to create some simple and some extremely elaborate pieces.

Many of those who created this work were skilled craftspeople who devoted their time and energy to pursuing their passion for creativity.

Like these craftspeople, I use very simple tools, cigar boxes, wood and vintage objects to create my tramp art, all in pursuit of my own passion for creativity. Besides the pieces you see here I also welcome commissioned work. You can see more of my work on my website, TheArtTramp.com

Enjoy!
