from 2012 to 2015 I spent my off-seasons from shepherding on Orcas IslanD, Washington. I WAS fortunate to work in a sweet old log cabin built in the late 1870's, as well as the blacksmith shop of Jorgen Harle. There I have self taught myself the craft of functional leather work.
After a few years of learning by doing, testing out designs and making things for family and friends, I launched my hand-made leather wares out into the world.
Currently, I am on a nomadic journey across the united states and recently returned from a shepherding school adventure to spain and france. Stay tuned for a new line of leather wares by yours truly in seasons to come. If you have an interesting custom piece in mind... holler. Thanks!
