What an AWESOME TOTE!!! I adore the denim contrast with the leather pocket and handles. It holds my MacBook 15" like a dream. Great product and excellent customer service!!!
My childhood was very nomadic, living in a new place about every year or so, and I had to learn to adapt quickly to new situations. From my beginnings in the deep south , my shy eyes were always observing my surroundings and compiling visual references. I had a natural artistic bent from a young age, and was fascinated with how things were put together. My socioeconomic level led me to be resourceful and creativity was encouraged. Especially entranced by fabric and textiles; my obsession continues and I love creating and printing my own textiles using discharge, dyeing and hand painting.
My varied roots include a great grandfather who was a Cherokee Native American. During my college education in Fine Arts, I was exposed to vast resources of historical and contemporary Native art, including functional objects like beaded and fringed clothing, and geometric pottery from the Southwestern tribes. This became a huge source of inspiration, and during my years as an art teacher, I made a great effort to expose this beauty, craftsmanship and history to my students.
I love the expressive form of fashion and interiors, and have a special affinity for Scandinavian design and geometric patterns. My entrepreneurial spirit continues to grow, and my work blends a bohemian seventies vibe with a modern sensibility.
