In the early seventies I spent time in Quray Colorado studying with Ron Kline who had a leather shop down town. I had a Leather Shop on the square in Oxford Ms. for thirteen years doing custom leather work. I see leather as more than just a functional medium. I desire to take leather to a more artistic plane, while still creating practical pieces. No two pieces of leather is the same. Each having its own function I attempting to form it into a distinctive piece.
