I LOVE PUNK!

One of the very first things that my mom brought me from U.S.A were the Sex Pistols' cassette NEVER MIND THE BOLLOKS HERE IS THE SEX PISTOLS. Last year, I had the opportunity to come full circle and revisit my all time Punk favorites. Not long after that, I was inspired to create a raw I LOVE PUNK! Bags and Totes collection. These completely hand painted bags were a great deal of work, but also a lot of fun. If Punk is an attitude, then these bags have an attitude, just like my self-portrait from the cloth paper scissors magazine.

I LOVE PUNK! becuase the image of women as mere sexy object bothers me.  I LOVE PUNK! because I do not like to be told what to do.  I LOVE PUNK! because it is more than music or a fashion statement.  PUNK is an attitude of individuality and restlessness in a world where globalization, generalization,  and conformism is the trend.
