I remember being given something to read in the sixth grade and having to write about what we'd read. It took me forever because I had to read each word slowly and link them together. We had to write about it and I couldn't find the words. They were all fragments of my thinking and seeing. At the time I was labeled slow and nonsensical, which I have learned over the years couldn't be further from the truth.
I felt trapped without a voice or words to explain what was in my head or how I saw things. So I discovered that I could better show you than tell you. Using color shape, drawing, body movements, and facial expressions, I finally found a way to communicate through art. These handbags are part of the beautiful collage that existed in my head, now finally made tangible in the creation of this line of bags.
I'm no longer coming from several directions trying to keep up. I am happy to give you something complete from my beautifully random mind. WE all have a voice inside that's unique and meaningful. I hope my way empowers you to find and share yours.
