Inspirations from the Sea

My latest creation, the seagull applique handbag above, sold to a customer in Los Angeles, CA today. It was inspired by my many trips to Fire Island, NY on the Atlantic Ocean. I often bring my watercolors and paint on the beach. I get such a sense of peace and calm there.

Spring is Coming


The past two weeks I've been busy working on my spring collection of handbags. Check them out in my shop. They are all made with natural materials such as linen, cotton and raw silk. I've also thrown in some microsuede since it works so well with my applique designs. The handbag above is made from a cotton canvas in burnt orange with a cream microsuede applique. The flap is made from microsuede as well and is adorned by a vintage button.
