BRIE NEILSON

Handmade

Originally from Vancouver, I am an artist and designer making out of my Nelson BC studio.

After having kids, making these bags became a way to be creative in short bursts of time.  My fabric and leather is collected from all over including my mother's design projects, travels abroad and off cuts from the upholsterer.  Each piece is unique and its parts thoughtfully combined. 

My bags are either one of a kind or part of limited run.

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 of my paintings have already found homes but I plan to get going on a new series soon, so please visit again. You can see my previous work here.
