About the Tote Bag:
Who always carries a bag? Mom. Who always walks beside mom and her bag? Child. This tote is designed for both! Inspired by my own childhood memories of fiddling with straps, tracing patterns, and otherwise searching for entertainment (and snacks), I decided to create a bag that functions not only for the carrier, but also for the potentially tiny viewer. Often we underestimate a child's perspective, yet they have the most valuable perspective of all. This is my way of recapturing it, and reminding myself of where I come from.

Plans for the Future: I’d like to be an art teacher, sculptor, writer, illustrator, photographer, singer-songwriter, baker, home designer, interior decorator, pet owner, farm manager...? I would like to do a lot of things.

A Little bit more about Gabrielle: Gabrielle Schofield is a Richmond based artist currently studying studio practice and art education at James Madison University. Drawing has been a passion of hers since childhood, and she has always been keen on representing her imagined world in terms of the world around her. Her current work explores perspective, time, relationships, and gratitude. She has most practice with 2-dimensional media, such as graphite, charcoal, and photography, but is always excited to create with new materials and techniques.
