I have always had a wild imagination, and loved to create.
My venture into the world of leatherwork began as a child; cutting, stamping and staining leather in the shed with my dad and two sisters. Dad would teach us how to make little stamped items such as bracelets, book marks and keyrings - some of which I still own today (the letters in my name stamped all out of order and some upside-down!).
I loved that time with my dad in his workshop, and the lessons he taught me are imprinted in my mind as some of my favourite childhood memories.
Over the years, with Dad's help, as well as a lot of experimentation, I would make special leather pieces as gifts for friends and family. This eventuated into taking orders for personalised pieces, and at the beginning of 2014, with the support of my wonderful husband Dan, I turned my hobby and passion into a small business.
While working on a piece, you will find me in my little bush studio nestled in the Adelaide Hills, or on occasion at my dining table over a cuppa.
I'm passionate about creating beautiful, unique, one-of-a-kind pieces, as well as sharing my skills with others through group workshops (check out the Workshops & Events tab for more information).
Please feel free to browse my current collection in the 'Shop Online' tab, or contact me with any questions about custom orders, workshops, or general enquiries.
I would love to hear from you!
