  • A hot new little purse… With my art on it!

    A hot new little evening purse is now being shown in Paris sur Mode 2015: it’s this little snakeskin design, by Cheet London (see photos below). What makes it special to me? The answer to that is that the person producing it is my cousin, Emily Cheetham. Emily and I collaborated on the design, using my painting, “Thunder” as inspiration, and her elegant snakeskin evening purse design. I live in Canada, she lives in Singapore. We are oceans apart, but we are joined in our desire to collaborate on something new, exciting, and fun!

    My painting, Thunder (50 inches by 40 inches, acrylics on canvas): the inspiration for the purse!
