I have explored many different mediums and I have been consistently drawn to textiles. The combination of texture, color and pattern are endless and this makes it such a versatile medium to work with. Combining these elements can be so beautiful and this is what inspires me to make my art.
Funky Thistle messenger bags evolved from this love of textiles in 2005. I began creating one of a kind bags, totes and purses for people looking for something unique.
The Funky Thistle studio is settled west of the Canadian Rockies in Kimberley, British Columbia. It is a picturesque little town filled with athletes, artists, back bears and meandering trails. Perfect to keep inspired and feed the soul.
Each FT piece is individually crafted with much consideration and attention detail. I strive for unique design and fine craftsmanship and above all I want to make beautiful things for the world.
