I graduated from American University with a degree in Design. After college I wanted to work for myself, so I have been participating in juried art shows for 38 years. I have always worked with leather, must be the smell!
My textured leather is all created by me using hand made metal plates thatares then pressed into the leather while it is wet. Then I color the leather to bring out the dimensions with different blends of leather dye. My bags are all original designs made by me, incorporating smooth and textured leather. I love the contrast between the smooth silky leather and the hand textured leather that has dimension when you touch it.
