Most of my adult life has been spent as a film production designer which was a fabulous career for a misfit like me. I've had no formal training as a designer. I love using my intuitive skills and appreciate the intricacies of design in all forms.

My passion is designing handmade leather handbags, wallets and zippered cases.

The challenge of going beyond gift giving to friends and family is that I find myself constantly evaluating and perfecting my craft, which keeps it fresh and exciting. My goal is to create designs that are chic, functional and classic with a modern twist.

Nitty gritty: It can take anywhere from 4 hours to 24+ hours to make one handbag. It requires a Zen-like focus and is labor intensive. When my hands begin to ache I go back to dreaming.

All handbags, wallets and boxes are signed or branded with my logo in saddle leather and made in the USA.

Enjoy the trip ... thanks for stopping by.
