Art isn't a choice it's a gift. Working in leather allows me to translate my training in 2 dimensional art into 3 dimensional leather art in the form of my bags. Creating fabric art has different freedoms from painting; I find it to be an addictive process. Crisscrossing ideas, colors, and designs, make up the foundation of my work. The texture, beauty marks, and edges, of the full grain leather cowhides inspire the designs of my bags. I make all of my bags with a Consew industrial sewing machine, loose threads are hand tied. Bags are numbered in order of production. As in all art, designs are dynamic and continuously evolving.
