"Clarabelle" Kitsch Clown Real Vintage Handbag & Purse

One of a kind, maroon-brown vintage handbag, with big eyed doll-face painting. This bag is in fully working order and comes complete with the original purse. 

Things to note:

  1. Don't leave in direct sunlight for long periods of time to avoid the colour fading.
  2. This is real vintage so there will be a few marks and scratches on the bag but it's in very good condition.
  3. I think this is real snake skin and leather.

Measurement of Bag (cm): (L- 30) (W-7) (H- 19)

Weight: 650g

I am self taught in all creative pursuits, i have always loved dolls and pop surrealism or lowbrow art, it's a huge part of what inspires me as a milliner.  
I turned 42 in January 2017 and 3 days later i decided to stop wishing i could paint so i started to paint. I have always said creativity is a muscle, the more you exercise the stronger you get but i was always scared to paint. There is so many amazing artists out there... how can i ever compete?! >.<

So through 2017 I doodled a bit and it was fun... and i made mistakes and i pushed myself... and things got a bit better... and i had soo much fun! 
I have fallen madly in love with painting and dollies and i want to push myself more and i want to do bigger things and i want to learn more stuff and i want to make more mistakes and i am excited to see where this new creative journey takes me. 

I guess i have learnt that i don't need to be the greatest artist in the world, only the truest, best, happiest me i can be... that is enough! This isn't just a bag, it's is a piece of my soul, it's my love and time. I hope it will bring whoever receives it as much joy as i got from making it.
