Today we meet Fairy Tale Fair newbie Last Born Daughter who we look forward to welcoming at our Easter Fair on Sunday 3rd April at Worthing Charmandean…
How would you describe your style and your creations?
My style comes from some strange place inside me and is driven by my love of neon colours which I use a great deal across my work! My work is light hearted and intended to raise a smile (or an eyebrow) with PUNCHY PRINTS, GREETINGS CARDS and VINYL STICKERS.
I also create sustainable jewellery and accessories hand cut from end of life inner tubes. I embellish the black rubber with pops of neon and metallic paint. They come to you backed on recycled cereal boxes with a label telling the story of who donated the tubes and where they were most ridden… WINNER WINNER TUBEY INNERS!
What do you enjoy most about your work?
Printmaking is my happy place, especially when using bright neon inks that pop on the paper. I use lino block printing techniques to produce prints which tend to be humorous and sometimes a bit cheeky! It’s always lovely to see someone chuckle at my prints!
What can we expect to find on your stall at The Fairy Tale Fair Easter Special on Sunday 3rd April at Worthing Charmandean? And are you looking forward to taking part?
This is my first appearance at The Fairy Tale Fair and I’m so excited to be here! On my stall you’ll find humorous/cheeky and cynical A4 and A3 prints, greetings cards and vinyl stickers, hand printed timber decorations and even some cheeky aprons! AND a selection of earrings, necklaces, wallets and purses made from recycled inner tubes.
Do you have a best seller?
My inner tube feather earrings are continually popular but my recent biggest hits have been my “SUP?” collection of digital prints, greetings cards and vinyl stickers.
Do you have any plans or ambitions for the future?
Watch this space for more explorations into repurposing materials (think vinyl records, fabric and leather offcuts and beach waste), more abusive bird prints and hand gestures and seaside prints.
Do you have a motto or inspirational quote?
Life’s too short for holding it all in, sometimes you’ve got to say it how it is!
Describe your Easter in 3 words…
Eggs, eggs, eggs
