Restless restaurant chef and visual artist starts design business.
The Love Shine line was founded in 1996 in the East Village in NYC by (visual artist and former chef) Mark Seamon. I began by creating one-of-a-kind messenger bags and backpacks - with iconic imagery - from hand dyed canvas for friends and family as a way to express my creativity in a different medium. The response was enthusiastic... and soon I started getting requests from friends of friends and a few boutiques. This inspiration eventually led to the birth a small design business. In 1997, I found an adorable studio, shop, showroom to work in and show my designs. If you are in NYC come visit at 543 East 6th Street between Ave. A and B.
