There is something about leather....

I had no idea this is where I would end up.....

 

It started with drawings as far back as I can remember.... the next thing I knew~ I was working with 

leather...

 

When I need to get away from life~ I find myself at my table, drawing, cutting, designing and working with leather~  It's the perfect way I have found to create what is going on in my head.

I start with an idea... It is then transfered on to paper.

From there I begin the process of transfering that idea into a design on leather.

It is hours of detail, and patience....  the leather starts as a clean slate and guides me where to go with each cut and tool I use...

 

I get lost in my work and love a challange!

I have been working with leather for over 20 years~ Describe what it is you are looking for~ I take that and using my creativity, create a one of a kind design just for you.

Most of my work comes from within ~ Leather is one of those things that the longer you have it, the more beautiful it becomes....
