It gives me pleasure to present art inspired collections of handbags for women, unique collections of vibrant colours and richly textured images dressed on styles of handbags that are timeless in design, handbags that make a statement about who we are.
As the painter and designer whose work adorns all of the bags in these collections I can place on record that what you see here is the result of more than seven years artistic and creative experimentation and development, a culmination that would not have been possible without the work of a talented and very well organised producer. What they do in their own field is truly outstanding.
The small number of bag styles offered in the collections are chosen with care because they must work well as bags in terms of quality, design and wearability. But even though the collections have a firm foundation in two bag classics, the Boston Bag and the Tote Bag, both closing on 100 years since their birth in the USA, the bags are unashamedly colourful artworks with stories to tell and messages to send out. The colours of my bags make deliberate statements in an often grey world …..because the “uniforms” we women are expected to wear by custom should not disguise the fact that each of us is a unique person, someone who cannot be categorised, each with our own past and our own dreams for the future.
Thank you for visiting the gallery, we look forward to engaging with you.
