I started my work in 1979 as a leather artisan in the Arts and Crafts tradition. My mission has always been to create goods that meet the needs of those who value individual workmanship. These goods have included items such as belts, bags, and wallets. I have spent many years honing my craft and becoming familiar with the properties and possibilities of leather. Additionally, I routinely study current and historical fashions. In my daily work, I create a variety of accessory items that I sew and lace by hand. Over the years, I have also created decorative arts and experimented with unusual techniques for shaping leather.
