As a child I remember making handbags for my dolls, using shoe lace, velvet, beads, flower petals -even pecan shells. I learned no richer source to spark my creative fires. I became obsessed with creating wearable art through imaginative interpretations of forms and media.
Years later, I understood the appeal and relevance of a handbag. As one of the cardinal ways women communicate, fit in; using it as a talismanic social symbol and a glamorous and impenetrable chaperon. Though working in finance at the time, I knew my natural desire -to partake in something that became a corridor in a woman’s subconsciousness, a way to navigate her self in the world, and something fated to engage in.
After being personally touched by 9/11, my life was affected in ways that sent me on a journey which directs me here today.
My art and passion for life hopes to find freedom in creation, transcending beauty to capture a femagination while challenging mine. Upon my daughter’s arrival, so came the birth of my brand. This carries her call and continues a love affair with inspiration from the seasons. Art like love…all or nothing.
