Sixteen Sisters

               

                                         Art has always been a part of my life;

                                   Finding purpose & pleasure with expression                                                                              through creativity motivates me daily. 

 

Nature's bright and bold colors 

always inspire me; 

  These inspirations will relate to a special "sisteR"... 

someone who enlightens my life.

I'll then create a design that unites the two.

  In fusing them together I'm able to paint personalities

into all of my handbags & their story is preserved.

I then name each bag after my inspirational heroes,

such as ELLA,

making these handbags much more than a purse

by creating wearable art.

With each design began the journey of

Sixteen Sisters.

 My canvases are

 natural milled leather handbags, totes & accessories.

Also offered are vegan leather handbags,

 which contain no animal products. 

 Hand painting on high quality constructed materials,

 makes these handbags ideal for everyday use. 

   Minimal processing on the leather items

 makes them super soft, pliable & durable.

 My paints, Angelus, are permanent on contact;

  made specifically for use on leather/vegan leather.

         An additional waterproofing mist is applied to finish each item. 

 

      Sixteen Sisters bags have traveled internationally and still look new!
