About nelarte

Sales 583
On Etsy since 2008

People inspire me. I hope my products and life inspire you too.

I started my shop in 2008 after my youngest son was diagnosed with autism. It was a difficult time and I needed to be inspired. I turned to cultural icons from the past, flawed people who struggled and got through their tough circumstances; artists, revolutionaries, activists, poets, and singers. My icons weren't perfect but who is? They prevailed through their art and passion and gave me hope that I would too.

All of my shirts and tote bags are hand screen printed and, sometimes, slightly reconstructed combining my passion for sewing and printing. I also make aprons and cuffs from recycled materials, and have recently added sewing tutorials.

When I'm not sewing and printing, you can find me in a museum facilitating art programs for children and adults.
