Love this bag! The quality is so nice and the photography really pops on it. Much bigger than I expected. Favorite!! Check out Jessica Lambert’s other photography! Beautiful work!

I love my beautiful "A Breath of Fresh Air" tote bag by Ellen Watkins! The image is so inspiring, uplifting and empowering, and the size is absolutely perfect. I love that the handles are long and I can easily grab the bag and swing it over my shoulder (I hate bags w/ handles that are short and make it uncomfortable to carry over my shoulder). This bag is particularly important to me because of how it makes me feel. I'm one of the co-leaders of a women's group and I have to carry a lot of materials to my meetings that are emotionally heavy due to the nature of our meetings. I wanted a bag for the materials that made me feel strong, powerful and whole. This bag does exactly that. And I love supporting Ellen who is a local artist and visionary! I love her work and I absolutely love this bag. It's perfect for anyone who wants a large tote bag that makes them feel beautiful and inspired!

Artist's Description

A lone green park bench perched on the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan on a cold winter day.

About Mary Machare

Mary Machare

As a designer, I try to find the little twist that sparks a connection, a wave of delight. When not otherwise occupied with developing brands, logos, packaging and trade show displays, I travel with my artist husband in search of inspiration. Many of the photos are from my home state of Wisconsin and from Spain and Peru. Wherever we go, the camera is in my hand, capturing the little things that inspire awe or make me smile. And because I love to tinker, I often play in Photoshop to create unique results. Machare design website Art website Facebook Instagram Please note: All photographs and artworks in...
