my new line of accessories and a giveaway!

Once upon a time I was attending a wedding and couldn't find a purse that I liked to go with my little black dress. So I grabbed one of my messy graffiti paintings, ripped it off the stretcher bars and sewed it into a clutch. Little did I know that this moment would COMPLETELY change the direction of my creative career! I suddenly discovered an entirely new process- painting canvas and fabric and remixing it into all kinds of accessories. I loved that a piece of art could be completely redefined!


I got so many inquiries about that first purse that I started making more to give to family and friends, then I opened an Etsy shop, began selling my handmade accessories at craft shows, to boutiques and museum stores, I created custom bags for all sorts of fabulous people (Warner Brothers staff, an Oprah executive producer, Maryam of My Marrakeshjust to name a few) and I even wrote a book about my process. After a while I couldn't keep up with the demand of making all those accessories and I decided to take a little break and focus on the teaching side of my business. A year or two passed and while I was still making accessories, I limited myself just to small specialty orders.


 Then something unexpected happened...Demdaco came calling. They had been watching me for a while and thought the accessories I created would be great for a line of licensed products. To be honest I had not even considered something like this but after hearing their concept I couldn't resist signing on with them! Insert 2.5 more years of development, creating art and some waiting for the right time I am happy to announce that my line of accessories- Heart to Art Remix is HERE!


There are scarves, purses, cuff bracelets and headbands all made from my original painted canvas and I couldn't be more pleased with the way that everything turned out! Its a little bit graffiti mixed with color and lots of texture- everything is a wearable piece of art! Soon, very soon I will have a variety of products for sale in my shop but in the meantime I wanted to give you a peek into everything!



In the coming weeks I will be dedicating my Fashion Friday posts to sharing a look into the products from my line AND I will also be giving away some fun stuff.

Today I am giving away two of these large expandable tote bags, each with a matching scarf!



To enter leave me a comment and tell me what fashion accessory you can't live without!
I will announce the two winners in a few days!


UPDATE!!!
the winners are-

Hi!!!
These are so great and you are so creative! I love them all!
I think I probably couldn't live without a bag, going out without a bag/purse/tote is like being naked:-)
Great giveawy:-)

Lallabel said...

Alisa, I can't believe it! i love yor art and I have spoken of you so many times in my blog.
There is a coincidence.. I can't live without scarf! I have many for winter and for spring/autumn, my husband joke to me because I don't wear scarf only in the middle summer. Even if at the summer nights, sometimes...
I love your new line, have a good luck with it!

Natalie B said...

congratulations!! how fabulous!! good to so much colour available in such a variety of products.
I can't live without my bracelets!! I have all sorts, but my favourites are wrap arounds.

kass hall said...

Alisa! These are spectacular and this acknowledgement of your amazing talent is long overdue! Huge congratulations!! I think it's the tote I can't live without (tossing up between maybe/definitely needing the scarves as well) so I can look fabulous as I get around town.

Hugely thrilled for you my friend.

Yvonne said...

Fantastic! Well done Alisa! - your creativity is so inspiring and I look forward to being able to wear it! Art to Heart is so clever and so true - art comes from the heart and to be able to wear and display it in bags and scarfs is wonderful! A great way to lift your mood!

barbara said...

Great! So happy for you! I can't live without scarves and BIG tote bags (I teach in primary school, think books, pens, paper, etc.etc.). I hope I'll get the chance to wear one of yours, I love your art.

To share with you a greek word: "sinharitiria" which means congratulations. I've been watching your blog for some time now and think your work is fabulous. All those colours and graffiti like paintings are absolutely gorgeous!!!!!

Janine said...

Wow - I love those colors! I can't live without scarfs...they are just to cozy :-)!
Janine

Daire said...

Wow! These are all amazing. congratulations!! I tend to lean towards the 'useful' accessories - I couldn't live without a big handbag to carry around a book, a notepad and half my pen collection. I love it when winter comes around though so I can bring out the hats and scarves too :)

Joan of LLD and ART is A Rhapsody Treasure said...

Congratulations, Alisa!

All of your new accessories are wonderful. I especially love the scarves!

One accessory that I total can't live without are HATS! I love hats. And scarves are a huge second to hats!

Vera said...

I can't live without my bag :) but scarfs are also amazing.

Ewik21 said...

FascinationStreet said...

Wow Alisa, congratulations! All of your accessories are wonderful,

Kim said...

These are everything I love! I am always carrying a big bag - that's my purse of choice. Have to have my current art project, at least one book and everything I think I might need when I leave home. I think subconsciously I'm afraid I'll be trapped somewhere and bored. Scarves are a daily accessory. A good scarf feels like a hug when you are away from those you care about and COLOR - OMG absolutely!!!!

lili.constanta said...

Congratulations! What a great job! I love scarfs! Where is your whimsical bucket hat? ;) I adore it, too, and bags, and bracelets and... you! :))

Potiron said...

Congratulations!!! very excited for you!!!

I always have scarves with me, I knit those I wear in the winter and either make but usually by the lightweight ones for summer.

I'm also a bag freak, and shoe freak, but I realize I always have a scarf with me wherever I go and when I don't have one on, I feel there is something missing...

Again congrats, love them all!!! and I like the name you came up with!!!

The Adventurous Art Teacher said...

WOW!!! Your amazing,congratulations. I wish a had half your energy then maybe I could retire early from my teaching job.
Would just love to have one of your scares to wear to school. They are my favorite accessory.
xxoo

jabbott said...

Alisa, these are awesome! Especially scarves and they are that i can't live without. I always wearing them and if I don't - i always have them in my bag (two or three depends on it's color). Your new line is full of colors and I love it!

Christine Langemeijer said...

cathy huer said...

Congrats! I love you work...I can't live without my scarf, especially now the weather is getting colder...

Leisurely Lesley said...

I hope this journey is hugely successful for you. I am unable to live without ( well, I suppose I would if I had to ) either a generous sized bag or a light weight scarf. Both are needed to make me feel secure!

Alina said...

Waaa! Congrats are in order here! Such a great opportunity for you! I love scarfs!

ligia estera said...

As always, I'm amazed by your work - full of bright colors, life and joy.

I love how you can turn your messy graffiti paintings into these super creative accessories! I can't live without a scarf. I like to wrap one in my hair as a headband!

Bfigur53 said...

Joanna Matuszczyk said...

Congratulations! I just love your awesome line of accessories. I can't live without scarfs. Doesn't matter if it's winter or summer outside. I'm always wrapped in any scarf:)

lghamilton@bellsouth.net said...

I was once color shy then I discovered your unique style and was very inspired. Scarves and tote bags are the best for adding flair and color! I am so drawn to your style. I love the messy and rythmic look! So much I bought a sewing machine as I just want to create ...but I have so much to learn!! Congrats on your new line and for being and inspiration

Anke Humpert said...

wohhh!!! That is great news! Congratulations! I really love your accesoires. The accesoire I need most is a scarf! Especially when it gets colder...;-))

Jana K said...

Scarves and headbands! And I wear the scarves as headbands. I love everything about your new accessories!

Fil said...

That is fantastic news Alisa Many congratulations to you :).

We're so in need of colour at this time of year - your scarves and bags will be wonderful for that.

I love wearing scarves as a headband. .... And as a musician i always have too much c**p to carry around so a new bag is always high up on the Christmas list.

Are you shipping to Europe and UK yet?

Henriette said...

Congratulations Alisa ! They are awesome, looking forward to buy your scarves :-)

Aušra Zakarauskaitė-Pukėnienė said...

Great giwaway!:D
I can not live without purses, shoes, scarfs etc. I have a lot of that, but I am still buying... and wearing of course. :DD

Sobre el Arte y otras Aventuras said...

Wow! Congratulations! Your line of accessories looks gorgeous. These (your) items express a lot of brightness and freedom in my opinion.
In my case, I can't live without scarves. Even in summer when it's boiling hot, I need to have a thin one around my neck. It feels kinda protected if you know what I mean…
Thanks for this giveaway and good luck on your new adventure, :)
cheers, Vron

Jill of All Trades said...

OH MY GOODNESS! How cute, how cute. Congrats on this new path of creativity. It is amazing how life works isn't it. I love the scarves, just love them. Carla

Barbara M said...

I am so thrilled for you. I can't wait to receive a scarf, either by winning or by purchasing one.

Diana said...

I can't live without a carf. Not only for the warmth of it but also for the looks.

Pat said...

I wear a lot of black, and a bold, colorful scarf can make an outfit POP! I love all of your accessories!!

Kathy, PaperPumpkin said...

These are so cool!!! I am a second grade teacher, so I absolutely can not go a day without tote bags! I LOVE to wear scarves, though! Congratualtions, and thank you!

dawn said...

Alisa, you look STUNNING in these pictures, WOW GORGEOUS GIRL!!! Each picture just kept getting more GORGEOUS!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!! Soooo excited and HAPPY for you!!!!

Thanks so much for sharing your good news and generous gift with us! I can't live without a bag and a scarf from you would be an added bonus.

I can't wait to see more from you!!!! CONGRATS AGAIN!!!

" m(i)e " said...

since today, I can't live without your scarf and tote bag !
What a great idea ; these accesoires !
Will they be available in Europe too ?

Kim said...

I've just crawled out of a less-than-ideal first trimester of pregnancy, so accessorizing became less important. But scarves, oh scarves how they hid my changing body an extra bit before I was ready to make the announcement. With my son, I was six months in before I started to look even remotely pregnant. This time, at 14 weeks, I am obviously pregnant. I need more in my collection because they aren't a bad way to accessorizing some of my plainer maternity shirts!

Christine said...

Alisa, Congratulations on your new line! What an achievement! Clearly this has been a result of a lot of hard work for a long time. Thank you for your inspiration and for these beautiful works of art!! I can't wait to purchase some. I can't live without scarves!! They are a great way to pull a simple outfit together with some bright color and are cozy too. Congratulations!!

Christine

Snap said...

Congratulations! Such wonderful news and the new products look grand. I love scarves ... the more the merrier. Tote bags are a close second. A girl can never have too many scarves or totes! Thanks for the chance.

Anonymous said...

Love your new designs! I'm sure it will be very successful. As to fashion accessories; I always wear earrings and LOVE bracelets.

Linda said...

Hi. Love this new collection, especially the scarves and cuff bracelets. On a bracelet kick lately. I can't go anywhere without some type of bag. Kind of feel naked without one. Thanks for this opportunity to win one of your great new products.

Fran said...

Love it!!!

Kate said...

so beautiful! i cannot live without a big bag. the more colourful, the better! so yours are right up my street :)

Maria said...

Wow! This is so exciting for you. I can't live without purses. Having a bag that makes me happy and contains anything I could need makes me feel like Mary Poppins, prepared for anything.

Abbey Wilson said...

Congrats! Your work is so beautiful. I cannot live without a huge purse or a scarf. I think both things help take an outfit to that next level and really make a statement!

Allison DiMaggio said...

Can't live without a scarf in New England! LOVE everything though, congratulations! Must feel good to finally show the world :)

Peggy said...

I am doing tje happy dance, love your new wonderful messy designs. I am a bag lady, love any and all bags, big ones to carry my art supplies. Of course a scarf would look fantastic with my tote. These products are a must have, thanks for the chance to win.

Janet O'Connor said...

Your art looks great as accessories! I love scarves. I wear them all year, except when it's sticky hot out. Scarves dress up the simplest outfit with a splash of color.

WortSchmid said...

Congratulations to your fabulous accessory line! Your art is so vibrant, joyful and alive, I love it!
My favorite accessory would be a bright scarf or an unusual colorful necklace... I always wear one or the other... or both! :) And bags... I looooove bags, the brighter the better.
Have a beautiful day! Love, Alexandra

Abigail said...

I'm not a big fashion plate but my favorite fashion accessory are my earrings, its amazing how a simple change of earrings can be such a big change in look and how I feel.

Jenn said...

Oh WOW huge congrats on your new endeavor! So exciting! I am loving everything I am seeing and hoping I am lucky enough to own something. I cannot live without my wedding ring, does that count? But I think if I were to own one of your scarves or totes, that would be a must have for me everyday! Gorgeous! Oh and Alisa, I LOVE LOVE LOVE your hair! :)

It's hard to step out of my house without my bag/tote but I'm starting to fall in love with the scarves also!

Steph H. said...

Wow, these are absolutely gorgeous!!! Congratulations on your new line!
My favorite fashion accessory is a purse but since my hands are so full right now with my little girl (who always wants to hold Mommy's purse :) ), when I want to feel a bit more fashionable I wear a scarf!

Danielle said...

Oh, how beautiful! It's scarves for me, of fabric-based accessories. And necklaces generally.

Beverley Baird said...

I can't live without hair ties/clips/bands. My hair has a mind of its own and most days just has to be tamed.

I love the bags and the cuffs..but the scarf is very nice...I just recently found your blog and your work is wonderful. Smiles, Ruth

Anonymous said...

Alisa, first of all congratulations, you so deserve this awesome opportunity. I just adore scarves and find item to be such a versatile accessory. I would love to have one of your scarves and perhaps even use it as a decorating piece in my workspace. All the best to you.

Julia Dinter.

Beth said...

Congratulations, Alisa!!!!!! I love your artwork and your teaching. I love totes in many different sizes.

Sharon Lee Bull said...

I love all of your designs! I am a big earring girl and second to that I must have a clutch or tote bag. I was so excited to see your post this morning because I adore your accessories. I hope you will also make your canvas bead necklaces. Congratulations on your new venture!

Kirsten Skjerbek said...

Your scarves are so beautiful; especially the blue and green one.

I would really like to have one, but as I live in Denmark I cannot buy at your web shop.

Therefore, winning one would be perfect :-).

DebP said...

Lovely!! and exciting! I am a bit of a bag freak, but love the scarves also. My daughter is going to Italy in January. Would love to give her a bag for Christmas to take with her.

Artes da Cris said...

Wow! Well...i love scarves and head stuff to tame my wild hair!
Thanks so much!
Love,

Jessica Carter said...

Congratulations! As a teacher and a coach, the bag is ideal. Your color choices are stunning.

alittletypical said...

Congrats! What an inspiring story! Currently owning an online fashion boutique and I hope to expand the business and be as successful as you are.

As I like to wear top with simple designs, I like to spice it up with an accessory on the neck. Therefore, my must have accessory is a necklace. Just for your information, I am attending a fashion preview tomorrow and I am going to wear a special necklace. A special necklace that consists of a scarf and a brooch.

jeannie lucky said...

I have made a painted tote bag with your style and I have made other bags too from Amy Butler patterns. I love my cuffs and I have to wear one of my fused glass pendants everyday.

Jenny said...

That peace bag is divine. And having said that I can't go out at all without a bag of some kind.

JaleM said...

definitely scarf!!

Becca said...

Scarves! Tshirt + dark jeans + a scarf = super comfy and still dressy enough for work.

Elisabetta Brustio said...

Brava Alisa!Your accessories are very nice!!!They are young, modern and colorful!!!(I fell in love with the scarf blue and green...) Take away everything but not my scarf!!!

Ora, però, ci vuole anche una tua linea di abiti!!! Io mi vestirei volentieri con una tua tela!

Now, however, we also need your own clothing line! I gladly would dress with your own canvas! (is it a correct English translation?)

Joanne said...

don't you look cute - hair is adorable. I love your cuffs!oh and the scarf..and..and..and. I love it all! Great collection. Kids stuff next!

Misty Wills said...

Laura SJ said...

This is so exciting! I'm thrilled for you and for all your potential customers. I think I'd better get started on my Christmas list.

Laura SJ said...

Oops...I didn't tell you what fashion accessory I couldn't live without...guess that'd be my galsses, except they re a necessity, so next I'd choose a good tote bag for all those extras that need to go to work with me.

jaime said...

The explosion of color and graphic elements would absolutely brighten one of my cold dreary Boston winter days.
Regardless of the outcome I will most definitely be picking up on of your amazing scarves! Great job and congratulations!

Helen said...

Hello!
How exciting for you and what an amazing opportunity!
I'm a big accessories fan especially scarves but at the moment headbands are essential to keep my hair away from my face when dealing with my two year old daughter and my 9 week old baby girl which leads me onto my favourite accessory; my baby sling. With a toddler to look after its a god send!
Congrats again!
Helen Chantler

Unknown said...

Oh my Alisa! This is FABULOUS..like totally!!! I live in Canada and I can't live without scarves...everyday!

My can't live without accessory hands down is a scarf, so great for brightening up an otherwise, quiet, neutral outfit.

Colleayn said...

Wow! Your accessories are amazing! I can't live without scarves. I wear one every day to jazz up my outfit (and to stay warm in the air conditioning or in the winters). I'm so happy for you.

The Faith scarf is so amazing! It would be a lovely everyday mantra.

The Yellow Door Paperie said...

This is so awesome! Congratulations!

My favorite accessories are scarves. I wear them from October to May in the Midwest. I love the 'Love' scarf and tote bag, they look so great!

Carrie said...

Love your art! The one thing I can't live without is a tote. What else I am going to carry all my art supplies in when I go places. My kids have lots of doctor's appointments which involves a lot of waiting so totes are really the one thing I must have (besides my art supplies)!

linnea joy tarbet said...

what? are you kidding me? i love this idea. how cool! one thing i can't live with out is a cuff. it's just the perfect something to make my bland outfit always pop! congratulations on your new found adventure !

frequentlyinfrequent said...

Everything is gorgeous!! A bag is the thing that I can't live without, but scarves are what I don't want to have to live without. :) I can't wait until they are available to buy.

Kristina said...

Love this new line of yours! My go-to accessory is the scarf. Love collecting colorful ones to make outfits pop!

Mrs Gray said...

So cool! My must-have accessory is shoes! I can do without just about anything else, but I've gotta have the shoes!

Laura said...

Thank you¡¡¡
Laura

Maria said...

Everything you make is just awesome! What I can't do without are scarves! I wear them all the time!

Jill-O said...

I've used your techniques to make accessories for myself and my family, but they of course don't measure up to what you do. Absolutely gorgeous! I make it a point to never carry purses, but more than make up for it with my book bags. I've got dozens in all shapes, sizes and colors. I would love to add an Alisa Burke bag to my collection. ( p.s. your designs would look great on an umbrella, another accessory that I love.)

Kara R said...

My ultimate go to accessory is scarves. I don't wear much jewelry, and scarves just add color and style to my outfits. Easy, and fun! I'm excited about your accessory line, its beautiful. Congrats to you!

Kim said...

Love, love, LOVE scarves. I also love long necklaces, and rings made from gemstones and wire. Look forward to seeing your other items!

Tamara said...

This is awesome, Alisa! Congratulations! I can't live without a cool bag. I'd love to have one of your totes!

Thanks,

DoOverDog said...

Can't live without a scarf -- a great way to add colour and texture to wardrobe basics!

kfdesigns said...


Joy & blessing on the launch of this new aspect of art adventure! I appreciate your generosity - teaching, inspiring and mentoring. My can't do without accessory is the engraved silver bangle bracelet my mother gave me on my 30th birthday (that was 27 years ago). I wear it everyday. She is long gone to spirit, but travels with me everywhere in that beautiful slip of silver.

Trish said...

I am so excited about your new line of accessories!! I can't live without statement jewelry - usually huge earrings, but I love a great statement necklace too, and wrist cuffs. Just not all at the same time! ;-) Congratulations. I hope I win one of the scarves/bags!

Tiff said...

I am a fanatic over statement earrings, chambray button-up tops (they go with everything) and maxi skirts. I ADORE the scarves!!!

April said...

Chandra Thomason said...

So excited for you Alisa!! Your accessories rock and I cannot wait to own a scarf...or 3!! That's what I can't live without, scarves!

Beth said...

I can't live without my tote bag. The bigger the better. I have been following you for the past several years. I too one day dream of being able to make a living with my art. You give us all hope and show us it can be done. <3

Karen said...

Oh my gosh Alisa...everything is stunning! Personally, I can't live with tights or scarves. In fact, one of the pictures above- when I glanced it- I thought "Oh goodness, I wish they were making tights as well with her artwork on it"!

Deb said...

I can't get enough of scarves! Those and totes are my favorite accessories. I think a wonderful scarf can create so many different looks from upscale fashion to just fun with jeans. I would LOVE to win something from you. Thanks.

Leslie McNeil said...

Stephanie Gentry said...

Oh, the excitement - so happy for you. I can't live without the scarfs, but then again, the totes are super cool, too!

Judy Hackley said...

You are one of my favorite artist, check your blog everyday. I have to have my scarf, a bag. I love bags.

Paula Whittaker said...

wow what a beautiful collection of accessories - I cant live with out scarves, I don't wear jewellery as my skin is sensitive and the scarfs make my outfit feel complete plus as I love wearing black, my collection of scarves add that blast of colour. I can see your scarfs will be perfect for me. Fingers crossed we'll be ale to get them here in the UK.

Amanda Fall said...

Oh my GOODNESS these are delicious! My can't-live-without accessory is actually color itself--whether it be in a big scarf, earrings, bracelets, or tote bags. I live for bold, juicy color and pattern--which is exactly what your accessories represent. Can't wait to see this line roll out!

Pineapple Beads said...

bracelet and scarf are two accessories I can't live without. Thank you for such inspiring blog.

AG said...

A tote or large bag is DEFINITELY the most valued and favored accessory with a large wrap coming in a close second... It is really exciting to see the launch of your accessories. The scarf featured with your green coat is a showstopper! Congratulations, I have been following you for sometime, and it's wonderful to see good things happening to hard-working, creative and talented people. Cheers!

Congratulations. These are wonderful. Maybe a scarf and large tote would be my can't live without items. I love the little clutch and have your book, purchased a few years ago when I watched you in Houston. I did not know then I would so enjoy all your work. Susann T

marie said...

Congratulations! This is very fun & exciting news!!
Your art makes such happy accessories...thanks so much for a chance to own a piece or two of it myself!
I have a passion for tote bags. The more the merrier!

lucruri said...

So fantastic! You are such an inspiration... full of ideas... you are just amazing! Congrats... it happens only to those who deserve it... and you worked for it. I think I can not live without a small backpack these days, as we, my hubby and I, moved into a small cottage in the mountains, and there is always something in the woods to carry home :)

MN said...

I love your new line!Your designs are so unique and refreshing.

I can't go out without a large tote bag (the larger the better to hold all of my art supplies) and my watch.

Mary said...

Thanks for a great giveaway - I have always loved your bright colors. My accessories of choice are: bangles, tote, scarf, necklace.

Judyknits said...

I love your colors and new work! ! Must have a bag of some kind for all my stuff!
It would be a joy to have one of your items!

Gotta say my favorite accessory by far is purses and bags! I don't know if you'd be willing to ship to Brazil, but if so, please enter me into the drawing! :) xo, Julie

Lisa said...

Scarves are one of my addictions. Love love love these and I went to the see where to find them without any luck...but hope I win one.

Deanna said...

Congratulations! I loved to hear how it all started... who would have known?? Great story. I can't live without a totebag... always hauling around art supplies, picking up something from the farmers market, etc.

Joi said...

I certainly can't live without those little zip pouches. I put what I use most in one and keep it in my purse to stay organized. I guess that would mean I can't live without a good purse either!

Ashley Lepak said...

I can't live without my scarves man, I just feel odd and my day isn't the same if I don't wear one.

I can't go without dangly earrings. I feel naked without them.

My rings! With a baby, so many accessories end up as chew toys or they get in the way, but not my rings :)
