James Sharp is a textile artist working in the High Peak, UK, where his studio is a converted double garage in the National Park. He has developed a technique for printing on fabric and then uses the printed material to create textile collages. These are appliquéd to a range of products including shoulder, iPad and laptop bags, aprons and his Stuff Stash. He also mounts and frames his textile collages.
James works extensively in art journals, which are made from recycled materials and have textile covered bindings embellished with collage. He has developed journals on a variety of themes including Garden, Travel, Frida Kahlo, Art Deco, Mucha, Alice in Wonderland, Clarice Cliff, Ladies, Weird and Collage. There are also place-specific journals for High Peak, Chorlton, Manchester, Bollington, Bakewell, Sheffield, Bermondsey, Much Wenlock, Macclesfield, Brighton and others.
He produces a range of books with slip covers made from recycled materials which can be used for writing in, making notes and jotting down ideas. He also has address books and diaries in his range.
He makes a series of books with denim pockets on the covers for storing pencils and other writing paraphernalia. More recently he has introduced leather covered books into his offering.
Many of these items can be customised to order, for specific events, organisations or your own personal preferences.
