About

The Slow Art Revolution

Once upon a time, I was in a hurry to make things. I was the fastest painter and illustrator in my art classes. I was so impatient. I attended the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, but despite a full scholarship, dropped out after my foundation year because I couldn't afford the rent or an alternate commute.

Disillusioned, I started participating in renaissance festivals. The sadness of an incomplete NYC art school education was replaced with the joy of learning outside of a traditional academic format. I got to dress up in costume and have a lot of fun within a community of artists and performers, too.

I quickly became apprentice to the very amazing and unbelievably talented artist, Lauren Raine. That was in 1991. She taught me things I didn't and probably wouldn't learn at art school about painting. In 1997, she invited me to work one on one full time with her on mask making. Although I was reluctant at first, I found that masks were indeed a very rewarding outlet for my desire to sculpt and work on the human form, as well as my passion for mixing color.

Lauren initially told me that I had fantastic ideas, and plenty of talent, but I needed to slow down and take the time to make something worthwhile. I had heard the same criticism from one of my drawing teachers, Nachume Miller, back when I was at SVA.

That one piece of advice finally took hold, and about four years later, Lauren sold her shop at the Arizona Renaissance Festival to me with her blessings.

I'm always trying to make the best work I'm capable of. Instead of getting faster, in some ways I feel I've gotten slower as I continue to care more and more about how the final result looks and feels. I hope what you see in my shop reflects that desire.

    Owner, Sculptor, Painter, Dream Interpreter

    I'm an unrepentant dreamer. I can't stop myself from creating, and my dreams influence my work. Much of my work is transformational. My husband and I strive to create excellent work you can use to transform your person or your environment.

    Ortelio is my superhero. He makes me laugh, feeds me, and prevents me from cutting too much leather or spending too much time doing base coats and top coats. He's practically indestructible, and strong like a bull.

Shop policies

Welcome to my shop!

Everything is hand made. This is an endeavor in support of a slow art revolution. I want every work to reflect care, effort, and method. I use no machines, and I don't want to rush through the creation process. I have been hand crafting leather masks and accessories since 1997. I have found that the best work is not made in a hurry. I want to ensure each piece is made as perfectly as an entirely human effort will allow.

Some of my items are made to order, the number of listings in my store DOES NOT necessarily reflect the number of items I have already made. Please contact me if you need more than 8 of any one item.***

Everything is made by myself and my husband. If you contact us about a custom order, we will usually offer an overestimate on the time needed. If we actually need all of that time, do not be surprised. Some things take longer.



If you have any issues or custom requests please contact me.
