"Beginning my journey into leather craft in 2013, I have explored a wide variety of techniques, and types of leather. I like to mix soft leathers with oil-tan or veg-tan, play with colours and dyes and add interesting embellishments as handles or catches.
It seems that people like what I make, and understand the philosophy of supporting crafts people so that their skills increase and the craft itself continues. Each year I continue to expand my knowledge and techniques thanks to the great support of my customers. It’s also a way of connecting with the local community in general, and with other crafters in particular.
It has been an enjoyable few years taking my wares to our local Coolalinga Markets and TactileArts craft fairs and seeing my work going to new homes. There has been some really encouraging feedback. To add some fun and participate with other leathercrafters I have also exhibited some of my work in the Royal Melbourne and Royal Adelaide Shows, and was lucky to have won a couple of prizes and received some helpful critique as well.
I'm looking forward to making more original designs. Keep visiting for updates and new products in the Gallery page.
