This is a unique item on high quality stock. I am very pleased w/ my purchase.
Mixed media FUNctional art... Art to carry around and use every day!
For many years i made papercrafts, mostly greeting cards. My style was very precise, straight, simple and formal. As with most artists, my style is evolving too ! I started this new adventure with no guidelines . Collage is an outlet for me that is free flowing, sometimes messy and full of spirit.
My bags and pouches (and other items) are all made one at a time .
Each pouch starts off as a clean slate of lightweight, white cotton canvas. Panels are cut, primed and prepared for painting, collaging and detailing. I use acrylic paint as well as oil pastels, ink, ink sprays and other mediums.
Each one is varnished with a uvls topcoat and then sewn with a colorful zipper.
I love to add inspirational words, quotes and themes. I feel that little constant reminders and support are important and this is a very tangible way to share this love.
No two pouches are alike and each is original art.
I welcome custom orders and larger quantity orders. Please convo me to discuss your special design and for information on quantity discounts.
