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
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.
