I love designing and making bags because the possibilities are endless and the combination of fabrics, techniques and hardware leave you with an infinite number of possibilities to explore and inspiration is around every corner.

What FUN! You have something so useful, practical AND beautiful and totally 'YOU' when you have completed your bag. You won't see another one just like it coming down the street!
