About

Fairway dreaming!

America bound? Let's hope so!

I first fell in love with America when I was a kid. My sister and I were fortunate enough to be taken by our parents to Florida every year throughout our childhood for our annual holidays. After doing the traditional touristy thing of Disney/Epcot/Wet n Wild in Orlando a couple of times, we all got rather taken a back when we ventured down and explored the Gulf Coast. In particular we fell in love with Sarasota and Siesta Key Beach!

It was during those Floridian holidays where we were escaping the British autumn/winter of cold, wind and rain, that I decided I wanted to live in the US when I was older and settle down there.
I was a pretty keen golfer at the time and had dreams like any other kid I suppose of becoming a Tour Professional. So during my teenage years, I practised and I practised and I practised some more.

Fast forward a few years and the kid is now 19 and living in Myrtle Beach, SC, attending Coastal Carolina University and playing NCAA Div.1 Men's Golf on a scholarship.
I clearly remember at the time, thinking I had arrived at my life and as I loved MB so much I really didn't think I'd ever come back to the UK.

But.........I did.

Why? I'm not really sure to be honest. I guess the only thing I can say is that I made a massive mistake back then and that I took everything I had over there for granted. There's an old saying that goes 'Youth is wasted on the young'. Well, it certainly was wasted on me!

It's been over a decade now since those times and I'm still trying to get to my promised land. Golf is tough, making a living is tough. And unfortunately as is entry to the US.
But there's a way and if you want something badly enough, there will always be a way. I'm a fighter, tough. Think Rocky mixed with Tin Cup, and I'm about there!
So these days I practise and practise and practise some more....AND....I also make art work too!

My days start early. I wake around 5am and go and practise. Then I come back and work on both of my Etsy shops to make them as big a success as I possibly can.

I have always been artistic. I've always been drawing things and designing things and it something that I really, really enjoy. I guess creativity and golf go hand in hand!

My shop on Etsy is called TheWatermelonFactory.
Here, I design Typography prints of all kinds. They feature lyrics, sayings or typography of some kind and are finished in a bright, bold style.
I really enjoy designing these and have a great time creating them. I like to keep it simple. I tend to use nice and simple fonts with big bold letters so that the impact of what's being said, or read, really hits home!

I love lyrics from songs as I'm a huge music lover! In particular I'm a massive fan of Dave Matthews. He's awesome and has some great lyrics. So you may well see plenty of 'Dave' pieces popping up!!
I'm basically moved by a great line from a song and I when I hear a special one, I imagine it as an art piece hanging on the wall straight away.
I like to be able to look at that art piece as I'm going through my daily life, stop and have a read. Hallways are a very good place to hang my prints by the way, if you're in need of a top tip!

I really hope that my time on here will allow me to be successful and eventually live out my dreams.
I certainly will be working extremely hard to make my shop a huge success!!

I would like to thank those of you who so far have purchased my items and I would also like to thank in advance all of you who purchase items in the future. Everything is done 100% by myself and I will do my utmost to make your purchase a very happy one!

Thank you very much for reading my story and I look forward to creating many friendships (and sales!!) through this wonderful site.

Mark :)
