The name ulantia is made up of 2 things. Ula is for the gem of the sea and atlantis for the lost city smashed together makes Ulantia...

A lot of the leather work i do today is very influenced by the time i spent living in a house filled with artists on the sunshine coast. Sharing a roof with so many awesome artists was so epic and inspirational. We created an art hub that brought many other artists into our awesome art world (sooo much fun).

Id have to say the deepest inspirations i have gotten through my time of being an artist have been from collaborations with other artists. I love bouncing ideas off of people and having the combined art power really makes an amazing piece of art.

I had an amazing opportunity to attend a geometry work shop in sedona AZ some years back and that really sent the designs in a geometric pattern direction. I have also done my fair share of traveling around the world and that has brought a wealth of inspiration to me. Especially the time i spent in india and the 2006 solar eclipse in turkey (wow solar eclipse magic) gave me such beautiful images/memories to channel into my art.

health and happiness
