I began working with leather while in college. I have appreciated art and aesthetics all my life, but before this had not found a median to work with. The first leather product I made was a dark brown riveted leather courier that I made 9 years ago and still wear to this day; I hardly go more than a couple days without using this bag to lug around my books, files, and miscellaneous items. It has survived Spokane and Portland winters, carrying the weight of graduate school psychology books, my taking up bike commuting, and a long board accident.
I now work part time as child and family counselor, and spend the rest of my time making and selling bags, purses, journals and wallets. *Visit my shop at www.talithaleather.com
