I am a Fine Art Gold Leaf Abstract artist living in Abbotsford BC. I work with gold, silver and copper leaf, along with hand made papers and acrylic paint. My work is primarily done on canvas, but about a year ago, I started collecting vintage train cases and box purses, and applying the same method to these items, as I do on my train cases. I revamp these completely, inside and out, each piece is signed, and as these are meant to be used I refer to them as "Functional Art " . As each piece is a work of art, they each have names, like "Dizzy Miss Lizzy", "Paris Blues", "Cherry Pie"..
Because of my love of books, old and new, I redesign some of these treasures and make them into journals, where you add your own keepsakes and momentums. Each is completely like nothing else you have seen before..as well as being 'Functional Art', they are quite the conversation piece.
