I've been making things for as long as I can remember. I like to find inspiration in the materials I use. Copper and leather are two of my favorite mediums. The natural patination process that occurs with copper is extraordinary and I love to use a variety of organic chemicals to change the surface color of the metal.
For my leatherwork, I love to layer leathers with a variety of textures and often embellish them with copper and found objects. Spending many hours on the beaches and in the water in San Diego, I often incorporates natural stones and shells into my designs.
Thanks for stopping by my little shop here on etsy.
