Today on Snippet’s we are talking to Shyanne Clarke, the swimwear and textile designer behind ‘Printsea’ a print design brand who love to spread sparkle and magic and inspire others to do the same.
The Snippety Snips
Tell us a bit about yourself and what your creative practice is, how and when you began:
I’ve been a textile fabric designer for the past 5 years. My style is very mermaidy and I love tropical florals, so my business PRINTSEA has naturally progressed to helping bikini designers find their signature style and launch beautiful labels.
Anything is possible if you follow your dreams, just ask Shyanne Clarke, a self-confessed dreamer + sparkle chaser who is making her mark in the fashion industry with her stunning beach inspired prints.

BE PRESENT COACHING
Today I am very excited to introduce you to Shyanne Clarke from Print Sea. This interview helped remind me exactly why I started this series as Shyanne is so open, honest and downright funny! I know you will enjoy this interview just as much as I have!
I first met Sunshine Coast local Shyanne Clarke by I guess you would say , a chance encounter. We both belong to a group of Australian business people online looking to collaborate with each other called Collabosaurus an absolutely amazing platform to connect, share and create magic.
Shyanne contacted me and said “Let’s chat to see how we can work together” and over one very slow glass of wine at a local Tavern on the Sunshine Coast, I must admit I have slowly fallen in love with everything this woman is and does.
