Kim Sempreviva Hickok's Profile

About

I was born with a paintbrush in my hand, instead of a silver spoon. My creative streak has taken me from drawing and painting to stained glass work, and now my latest fetish is leather work. I'm always creating something whether its a spectacular meal, a part of my home, a commissioned painting or an outfit. So there isn't much I can't come up with when it comes to needing some creative ideas. In my first job at the age of 9, I was in charge of the gift wrapping department of a family owned business. Customers would insist on having their gifts wrapped by me. The tips were also great! At that age I was rich, especially during the holidays.

As I've traveled through life, I've worked in retail, been a business consultant to over 400 businesses, entrepreneurs, and a few celebrities and I've even sold real estate. Yet everyday of my life I've yearned to find a venue where I can put…

As I've traveled through life, I've worked in retail, been a business consultant to over 400 businesses, entrepreneurs, and a few celebrities and I've even sold real estate. Yet everyday of my life I've yearned to find a venue where I can put my creative talents to work and share them with whomever wants a piece. Thanks to Etsy, I've found it!

Now that I've gotten that out of the way, I am opening my shop with creations I'm proud of. After extensive searching on Etsy, I can say I haven't seen anyone making what I'm coming out with. I will say, its all about leather. Sempre in Italian means "always." Its also the first half of my family name. The last part is "viva", which mean "always alive." SempreLeather will bring you handmade & a few vintage leather items. I hope you enjoy browsing my creations and that you find something you like!

I'm excited about being a part of this community!
