Again, another sweet little bag for during those times when a larger bag is too much. Didn't take long to arrive. Well packaged. Much thanks!

About

Smart, Stylish & Handcrafted Leather Handbags & Accessories

I've been designing since I was old enough to hold a crayon, a needle and thread or a pair of scissors. Growing up, my father was my inspiration. He made designing interiors look like fun and brought out a passion in me that evolved into a multifaceted career.

I've had no formal training but that has never stopped me from pursuing the intricacies of design in all forms. Handbags came into the picture when I couldn't find one that was simple, lightweight and not huge.

Today, I love the zen-like focus it takes to create a handbag or wallet. I'm fascinated by how a simple skin of leather can be transformed into a functional and beautiful product.

Inspiration often comes from the shape of an object or the smooth feel of a piece of leather. Occasionally, I'll create a handbag in a dream state and attempt to sketch it when I awaken. My sketches are pathetic. I'm much more a hands-on doer.

I believe that your handbag should be as unique as you are. My Los Angeles home-studio is smoke-free and pet-free. I welcome visitors.

    My career as a Production Designer led me down many creative paths and taught me that there is no limit to the definition of design. I love creating, whether it is a handbag, a movie set or a piece of furniture.
