Kathy Thomas' Profile
I live in Amarillo, Texas and have been leather-crafting since 1992. I enjoy combining art with useful objects and accessories. I'm drawn to colorful, folk art designs as well as replicas of famous works. Many designs are inspired by the local southwest flora and fauna. Even my own backyard, my trusty dog, Jack, and neighborhood cats have ended up on leather paintings.
I am a semi-retired social worker who has always been interested in art. It was good therapy for me to take up an activity where I had some control over the final outcome! I love to make things that people can wear or use. It's always exciting to make a sale and know that someone would actually buy something that I made!
I have had my work in galleries in Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado and do occasional arts and crafts shows, mainly in Santa Fe...
