HANDMADE & HAND-PAINTED BAGS
I started making shoulder bags while living in Paris, after a friend of mine (Julie Bourgeois, a clothing designer) used a painting of mine in a dress. I liked the outcome so much that I started making my own stuff and painting directly on the surface. Almost all of the bags are made of recycled material (old khakis, a friend’s shirt, drapes, belts, tablecloths) and I never make the same bag twice. Wearing your art is a means of exposing individual taste in an increasingly homogenous society. Express yourelf and let the world be your gallery.
