Sketchy & a good way.

Creatively, my two passions are drawing and sewing. I have been designing and making bags, wallets and accessories for the last 20 years.
My process begins in my sketchbook. I do illustrations inspired by friendship, love & mischief often with a twist of dark humor. I play with repetition and placement to adapt my artwork as I design patterns for my accessories. I do my own screen printing, applique, embroidery and sewing in my home studio. I combine new fabrics for structure and strength, with reused fabric accents and my printed and pieced artwork to make each piece unique.
I graduated from NSCAD in 1998 and started my first business shortly after. I sold regularly at the Halifax Brewery Market until I made a move to Montreal in 2001 to gain some professional experience and start a family. We returned to Dartmouth in 2012 and I decided to rejoin the local craft community. After trying out a few smaller shows in the 2013 holiday season, I had a great response to my work and I am now working on my craft full time. Several local shops carry my pieces, I am a juried NSDCC member and recently opened my first Etsy shop.

Welcome to La-La Land Handmade on Etsy!

I design and create handmade bags and extras. My current collection includes tote bags, purses, coin wallets, pouches and fashion accessories.

My aim is to create pieces that are casual and fun as well as practical and a little dark around the edges. I combine quality natural fabrics for structure and strength with accent fabrics from my collection of reclaimed materials to highlight the screen printed graphics and make each piece unique.
