About

From Butterflies to Bags

I like butterflies, nature, gardens, and pets, as well as protecting Mother Earth. I love to paint & create visual art that reflects my folk, hippie, colorful, nature style. My creations take form as decorative slates, upcycled purses, & polymer clay beads.

My parents have old slate shingles in their shed from a past girl scout folk art project. I began recycling this slate for hand-painted novelty magnets that feature butterflies, flowers, & garden items.

My first purse was made from a design I had painted on a pair of jeans. The jeans had worn out, but I saved the design. Years later, I combined that applique piece with khaki fabric from an old pair of pants. The purse strap was inspired by my uncle's 35mm camera neck strap. Wherever I went, people would comment on my purse. This inspired me to make more designs that would eventually be put together into my Etsy shop.

The body of each purse is made from recycled denim and twill fabric from jeans and pants. Flowers and butterflies are painted from nature, often sketched on paper with colored pencil first. Each completed purse is ironed to heat-seal the acrylic paint. There may be small imperfections, but each purse is made with care and is a unique piece of art.

Where does the name Snowywinds come from? I was trying to come up with a clever email address to represent my music & art studios. 'Snowy' happens to be my hippie name given to me by my parents (& while I'm glad it's not my real name, it's a cute nickname - Snowy Winter.) 'Winds' represents the fact I am a professional woodwind player (see www.etsy.com/listing/193710873.)
