About the Artist

"As a leather artisan since 1974, a natural rhythm has developed in my work. Before hand cutting, each piece is examined thoroughly. As I lay out my designs I choose which part of the hide will work best to enhance each piece I am working on. Then each seam is guided carefully on an industrial sewing machine to insure quality and longevity." "My leather bags are classic and functional. I use natural, textured and waxed finished hides. My current work includes burning images onto the surface of leather to create a positive-negative effect. I have been doing “hands”, “letters” and “abstract images” and have had fun flowing dots around the images creating pictographs such as “Hand Bags” or “MI Hand Bag”. My recent work includes metal buttons and hand made silver pieces.
