I transfer my love of painting fantasy art onto the canvas of leather.Currently based in Atlanta, Georgia, I learned my trade from the tutorials of Andrea Masse-Tongetti (merimask.etsy.com). Inspired by her techniques, I finally found an outlet for my love of the symbolism and beauty of masks! I work as a fantasy illustrator by day, where my love of Art Nouveau and Romantic art inspires my leather crafts.
My leather items are meticulously carved by hand using specialized tools, soaked in water, and baked in the oven to harden them. After hardening, I paint my items by hand, where I get to have the real fun of the entire process.
You can watch videos of my process on YouTube:
