K’s Atelier Hand-Painted Bags
Looking at the designs of Katherine Paler Rivera, or K as she likes to be called, there is a refreshing and serene sense that comes with it. It spruces up an already pretty handbag with a beautiful hand- painted acrylic design that’s personal to the owner and makes it very unique with a great sense of style.
K, a fine arts and senior high arts and design teacher, is a fine arts major in painting graduate from the University of San Carlos. She started doing her hand-painted designs on bags, as well as clothes, last summer when she got bored and had a rush of creativity inside her.
“I got bored and started painting my old and torn leatherette with a picture of Wonder Woman,” she said.
After doing that, a friend of hers asked her to paint a pair of denim pants and a skirt to wear for her vacation in the United States. And by word of mouth, her clientele grew.
Most of K’s clients and friends ask for a floral design on their bags and clothes or sometimes fictional characters or their favorite animals or just anything their hearts desire. However, K would always take it into consideration the shape of the material and what design fits for the bags or clothes.
“I believe my four years of training in fine arts and my experiences in a way give me a keen eye for design,” she mused.
K has a deeper reason why she paints. Every time she creates a piece, K prays or listens to praise songs. “It’s my way of being disconnected to the world and be connected to the giver of my talent. Painting for me is a way to glorify God and share my passion to others,” she said.
