Over-the-shoulder tote bags are 15" X 16" and come in a variety of colors. The images are created from Nan's original art and photographic references—and are printed and heat-pressed by her, as well. Since each tote is a one-of-a-kind, there might be some variance when orfering two of the same.
The totes come in two weights. Both bags are sturdy and have a beautiful texture:
1) 100% cotton canvas
2) Eco Cotton: a lighter weight, but made tough with a mix of cotton and some recycled plastic fiber.
Bag colors can be switched. Images look good in a variety of other colors. Some hand-dyed bags in various subtle colors are available.
From the North Country of the Adirondacks to the Pine Bush in Albany, Nan can be found looking for butterflies, dragonflies and various creatures that inhabit her canvases. She particularly enjoys raising some of her subjects and painting their life cycles.
In the fall Nan heads further out for other sources of inspiration. To Texas, where butterflies are still flying in great numbers - as that is when the season brings the high heat and humidity that these southern winged jewels crave. And that is also when the fly overs from Mexico are seeking fresher nectar and food plants. Not unlike their human companions.
Additional travels across the country - and beyond its borders, brings new species into the mix. You never know what creatures will be emerging next in Nan's art!
Great gift for friends, teachers, kids - and anyone who appreciates the beauty of the natural world, and the incredible diversity of life on earth.
