My family and I live on a small farm in Northeastern Washington, located three miles from the farm where I grew up. I have drawn my whole life and rural farm life provides a never ending supply of my favorite subjects - farm animals and wildlife.
I have worked since 1981 building harness and tack and sold harness in countries all over the world - Japan, Egypt and France to name a few. My experience has allowed me to tie together working with leather and my love of art when I learned the technique I work in today. My work combines drawing, leather tooling, sculpting and painting in a three dimensional piece of sculptured leather art. Each unique piece is done with one piece of leather from an original drawing.
