'The Bulloch Collection' is a range of designs, primarily for textiles, by Sarah Jane of Sarah Jane Hemsley Upholstery. Each design is based on a land or seascape of the Isle of Bute taken from original screen printed ink drawings by Lyn Bulloch. Images include the iconic Waverley paddlesteamer.
Born and bred on Bute, Lyn lived and worked there nearly all his life. He was my school art teacher, a family friend and a professionally trained artist. The drawings have a distinctly mid century style which fit perfectly with my passion for furniture and design of that period.
I now live and work as an upholsterer in Twickenham but I grew up on Bute and share a love for the island’s beautiful scenery and always found Lyn’s work inspirational and irresistible. I'm delighted to have the opportunity to use these sketches in creating my digitally printed designs. Products in the panama cotton textiles vary from feather cushions (coupled with Bute wools), drum lampshades, and vintage upholstery. For my debut at the fair I'll be showcasing the designs on matt coated wallpaper.
