Love art? Love fashion? Then how about some art mixed-in with some fashion? Houstonian artist Hanh Tran is doing just that. Combining her love of fashion with her passion for art, the celebrated artist has created a line of unique hand-painted purses, evening clutches, wallets and cosmetics cases.
Made of canvas and inspired by her abstract and postmodern impressionist pieces, this little evening clutch might just be the perfect accessory for an evening out in a black cocktail dress or in simple blue jeans. Adorned with thick, bold and colorful pink brushstrokes, this artsy evening clutch is one of many available as part of Tran's creative handbag offering. For the complete collection, check out The Hanh Collection website at http://www.thehanhcollection.com.
Hanh started designing her hand-bag collection back in 2011 when she simply couldn't find an evening bag she loved in stores. Being an artist with a creative spirit, Hanh took to the brush and started painting one for herself. "It started out as something personal for myself, but I received so many compliments and request[s] to paint more bags from my clients and strangers that I started to carry my own line as part of my art that I created."
Known for her thick, abstract layers of paint, Hanh truly enjoys hand-painting her accessories and giving them an artistic 3D effect. "I use fabric paint so it is safe to the touch," Tran explains. "It is wearable art."
Tran strongly believes that art has a healing effect, which is why she runs the Hanh Gallery Art + Wellness programs. The artist regularly visits hospitals, nursing homes and healthcare facilities to offer personal art lessons and art parties for groups. She was recently commissioned by the Helping a Hero committee to paint a work for their Helping a Hero gala. Her artwork titled "American Heroes" raised US$50, 000 for building homes for returning wounded veterans.
