BRIE NEILSON

Art + Design

Born and raised in Vancouver, Brie is a multi-disciplinary artist currently living in Nelson, BC.

After having kids, the bags became a way to be creative in short bursts of time.  They are all one-of-a-kind and made with Love. The fabric and leather is collected from my mother's design projects, travels abroad, off-cuts from the upholsterer, and repurposed clothing.  Each piece is unique and its parts thoughtfully combined. 

The leather I use is mostly up-cycled so please appreciate its imperfections!

I studied painting at Emily Carr University in Vancouver in the early 2000s and enjoyed showing and selling my work for many years, including many commissioned projects. All the paintings on this site have already found homes but I plan to get going on a new series soon, so please visit again.
