This artist works with many different mediums (painting, sculpture, textiles, etc.), and everything she makes is certain to make you smile. Seriously, you can only be happy looking at her art, which is a pure reflection of the artist. Ploy’s work is beautiful and strange, and clearly the work of a singular—and fantastic—imagination.

Practical, artistic statements, each of Ploy’s nylon bags are individually hand stamped with one of her fantastically bizarre woodblock carvings. She works with an incredible diversity of designs and colors. You’ll often see many of her favorite animals in her designs, including her cats. You’ll also see recurring imagery of flowing hair and eyes, and she often paints an interpretation of herself into her work. I added the names to the bags. A world class artist, I feel lucky to say that this is Ploy’s debut selling her bags to a store in the US.
