Wendi McGowan

Wendi McGowan is not your typical artist. True, the very nature of an artist it to be atypical, but the manner in which McGowan intertwines her painting with fashion architecture is surely something to be seen. Luckily, it is being seen, upon the shoulders and clutched in the hands of discerning Dallas women the city over. Her exclusive line of hand-painted bespoke bags, known as bolarti, is a chic, sophisticated collection coveted by fashion-forward individuals and artistic types alike. McGowan’s ingenious creations, crafted with superior acrylic paints and Italian canvas, let owners actually feel a work of art every time they grab their bag. Her collection even earned her a spot on the up-and-coming list as a contender in this year’s Texas’ Next Top Designer. With what looks like a bright future in store for this Dallasite, we can’t wait to see what she does next.
