Artist Statement

I make beautiful and functional leather work. I combine the durability and natural beauty of leather with the quality of handcrafting/ hand sewing to make one of a kind pieces that will last a lifetime. I love the idea of my work becoming part of someone's story. A piece that they can reliably use/wear along their journey. My work ranges from personal adornment, to clothing, to journals/sketchbooks, to bags. And I am always open to custom creations.
