Textile art. Eclectic accessories. Eco-conscious.
Hello, I am Juanita. As an avid upcycler and full-time daydreamer I create quirky bags and purses with personality, experimenting and tinkering away on each item personally with my undivided attention. My ethos is to reduce, re-use and re-create. Everything old is new again, each product is an individual piece of heart.
To include my interest in printmaking, I literally put my stamp onto my work by featuring our world-travelling designer Ragdoll Birman cat, Pickle, in the ‘Pickled Pockets’ collection using block printing and silk screen printing, expanding the range to include homewares and other accessories. (Let’s Pickle everything.)
Showcasing this Spring 2016 is my new series of bird illustrations inspired by the charismatic birds I have become familiar with in my backyard in Adelaide Hills. An ‘Amateur Backyard Bird Count’ so to speak, which stands at 5 birds and 1 chook.
As an independent maker each creation is hand made by myself — alongside several cups of tea — journeying from my home to yours.
Born and raised in Singapore I have been gathering experiences since 2004 from Europe, America, and now Australia. I am on most social media sites and would enjoy having a chat with you, but most importantly, thank you kindly for your interest.
