about the tote

Similar to writing, I never consider myself an artist in high school. Art class was restrictive and uninspiring - and my assignments were embarrassingly mediocre. During the pandemic, like many, I needed a means of exerting some energy after being pent up in the house all day.


One fateful afternoon, I picked up a brush and aimlessly started painting Evil Eyes on a plain tote bag. This one bag spurred on a hobby and stress-reliever that eventually turned into an episode of 'Hoarding: Buried Alive'. After many questions (and way too many totes to keep for myself), I have now decided to share my totes with the world!

Your tote bag is 100% made in Jamaica with a durable and long-lasting cotton canvas material. Your tote is uniquely yours and the perfect way to express yourself whether travelling, staycationing or running errands. All designs are one-of-a-kind and hand-painted by me!

care instructions

To protect the hand-painted design on your tote, spot clean or gentle hand wash inside out is recommended.

Additionally, do not tumble dry or dry clean.  Do not apply bleach to the bag. Use a dry iron on the cotton setting with a pressing cloth to protect the painted area.
