I love art and nature

I am a born and raised Seattle native, who loves being surrounded by water, mountain and trees. I am an outdoor enthusiast that is inspired by nature, textures and materials such as metal, leather, wood and rock. I am always trying something new.

I enjoy photography, graphic design, illustrating, metal work and painting. I keep inspirational words around me to keep me motivated and positive, while incorporating them into my designs when possible. I am drawn to black and white images and see the textures and shapes in everything. I like to simplify my photos into textures and outlines that you will also find in some of my creations.

I am the artist that created all the art in my shop, however I use outside production partners to help me print them. This allows me to not have to inventory the printed items and keeps the cost down.

I released my first children's picture book, Chasing Tony, in 2014, and I plan to continue with more books in the future.

Additional policies and FAQs
This grid may help you to determine which size fits best for leather cuffs. It shows what 1/2 inch and 5/8 inch are when added to your wrist size.

From experience I found if too tight a fit the bracelet can pop off if you happen to slam it against something like a desk or if you catch it on something. Pushed up against the wrist bone it acts as leverage to help pry it off. If you have about a 1/2 inch leeway (about a finger space between cuff and wrist), it is comfortable and when you happen to hit it against something it can move easily over the wrist bone and stay comfortably in place.

to convert to metric cm use formula
inches x 2.54 = cm
example 7 inches x 2.54= 17.78 cm

I have found the more I wear my cuff, the more comfortable it becomes. The leather relaxes more giving you a more distressed feel to the leather.

My inspiration for working with leather comes from purchasing a natural leather backpack in Greece 25 years ago. I love how it has aged and gained a beautiful patina over the years. I still love it.
