Sixteen Sisters

             My designs are inspired by a lifelong love of art & nature

                      combined with unique friendships that are woven into my life.

          Art and painting have always been a part of my life and I try to paint daily. 

 

     Nature provides bright, bold colors that 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 so

much more than a purse.

With each design began the journey of Sixteen Sisters

 My canvases are

 natural milled leather handbags, totes & accessories.

As well as vegan leather handbags,

which contain no animal products. 

I only hand paint on high quality constructed materials,

 making 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!
