Welcome to the vibrant colours and richly textured images of my bags for women, especially those who love to travel to take in the extraordinary sights the planet has to offer. They are the result of more than five years artistic and creative experimentation and development.
I work on the architectures of bag designs of impeccable provenance, doing so by following the lead of the Renaissance period artists of Rome and Florence who uplifted the soul of buildings of great architectural merit more than half a millennia ago by painting meaningful, colourful stories in the empty spaces of their grand ceilings and soaring walls.
I now paint [metaphorically that is] in the spaces around the roof timbers, the pillars and walls of classic bags - to create the possibility of whole new sensory feelings in my kind of women for my bags. Images can recover feelings that lie deep in our inner consciousness, the treasure trove of the ancient limbic memory - see an image of a ballet dancer in a moment of graceful movement and some will remember oh so fondly when they travelled with their parents to Saint Petersburg all those years ago and sat spellbound at the Mariinsky watching Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake. Colourful images are more than just paintings, they are the real soul of a bag, touching feelings that only a potential owner is aware of.
I hope you like my collections.
