Announcement   I am an artist, story teller, prankster, all around bright eyed busy tailed raconteuse as well as a seamstress, and these bags and my other creations, skirts long and short, reading poufs, cards, hoodie tops and silent windchimes represent the narrative running around my world. It's my tomboyART! These bags and skirts are created and sewn to last you through many years of enjoyment. Not a single one is the same. Each one has something different to it. I find "perfection" utterly boring. Life is beautiful and full of curves and curls and what we create and make should reflect this lovely organic world.

New fabric has landed this week. HOT, or should I say HAUGHT, it's fabulous wax print from Tanzania, "lady stilettos", YES, in yellow, black, deep orange and lime green. DELICIOUSNESSSSSSSSSSS. Oh me oh my, be on the look out for new quilts, bags, flags, skirts, cards, reading pillows, hoodies and more. And some lucky pieces will feature some of this dreamy textile.

OH THE INSPIRATION
ladies get in formation
I'm sewing in elation
working in my new location
this vocation is my salvation
art's ultimate creation
is freedom from frustration

Getting silly over here, must be the new fabrics. They're joyous.

I used to live in the Mojave desert in the Wild West with a bunch of animals. That's where tomboyART was born. Metal signs and carousel skirts. Art from old things we throw away, all with my color obsessed passion. Then the Delta called my name and I was lucky enough to move here, my second home outside South Africa. Here, in this land of treasures galore, the best kept secret in the world, I found my place, my love and the best of times. Music, people, culture, love and stories, it's the best place on earth! But shhhh, I didn't tell you.

I have a new skirt design, long maxi, cozy, cashmere, comfort and total design. Check them out. Spring will bring lots of carousel skirts, also my new style that hangs just oh-so-beautiful, from little ones to big ones, watch this space. New items on the menu; folk art quilts, handmade cards, massive reading pillows in multiple sizes, flag banners that I call SILENT WIND CHIMES and zippered make up pouches.

Please email me if you want a custom skirt with your measurements, height and the color combo you'd like. I enjoy making these yummy bits of deliciousness. Convo me here please. Let me know if you want the maxi, regular carousel or longer version carousel.

License plate signs has been one of my passions; as an émigré from South Africa I have been fascinated by the beautiful state plates, the colors, the icons, the typography, and have always wanted to make something with them, they're just too beautiful to discard. So I started to make sarcastic, funny, tongue in cheek and other signs. If you want a personal sign, let me know the states you are interested in or color scheme or if there are any particular iconic images that represent a memory, anything, and it'll be my pleasure to come up with something wonderful.

Everything gets shipped from the MISSISSIPPI DELTA.

Thanks for visiting my shop :)
