There really is so much to tell you guys... But I'll keep this to the things you actually want to know.
I'm a maker! I make all sorts of things. I've grown most popular for my leather makings although my background and skills have formed me into a well rounded creative, capable of much more than just leatherwork. Though I no longer sell my work through etsy you can see some positive reviews through that account HERE
Leatherwork has been my main focus the last 10 years and I am quite a professional designer, pattern maker, and fabricator of leather loveliness. I grew tired of factory line style making so I now prefer one off custom designed pieces for individuals. I have a very utilitarian style of design and stick to logical shapes and realistic designs accentuated by rustic hides and natural suede interiors.To see some leather pieces I have made in the past check out my Instagram and scroll back a lil' ways HERE
Patches and Stickers are a fun way for me to use some of my illustrative designs to create neat embellishments. I've also created many custom patches and digital design work for bands, businesses and personal use. Check those out HERE
The Craft Coven is a growing creative Facebook group that I have been running since February of 2016. The group meets multiple times a month for group crafting, supply swaps, show and tells, and workshops to share new skills. The group has given me the freedom to continue exploring different creative projects while also teaching the things I have picked up over the years. Everyone is welcome, join the coven HERE
The Supply Chest, an offshoot of the craft coven, is a Free Supply Library system that I am setting up throughout the city. Following the Free Book Library model I am collecting, decorating and placing weatherproof boxes for people to donate and collect art supplies. The Craft Cupboard sytem will also involve planning city wide crafting projects and instructional sessions for people of all ages. Follow along with that progress HERE
Spinning and Weaving with natural fibers on my 36" floor loom has been a constant since learning the skills and collecting the supplies in 2008. I do not accept spinning or weaving commissions at this time but am accepting students interested in the field. Contact me if you'd like to discuss some fiber learning opportunities.
Watercolor and Ink drawings are a personal interest of mine and I'd say more of a passion project. I have been loosely applying color in the form of inks and watercolors. I am totally available, and super psyched to offer custom painting requests within this style. Please reach out with inquiries.
Thanks for reading, I think I'm special too :-D
