My Bio
A self-trained leather artisan, I have studied on both sides of the Atlantic earning degrees in Psychology, Arts & Technology. My work brings over a decade of creative study from a range of fields spanning dramatic and musical performance to sculpture, animation, film and storycrafting.

Primarily I specialize in leather (carving & tooling, design & construction) with occasional detours into chainmaille, chalk (street paintings), writing and filmmaking. At its core my work infuses flow and sensuality with abstraction and narrative.

Favourite Visual Artist
Jim Henson, Tim Burton, Guillermo del Toro, Russell T. Davies
Favourite Writers
Lovecraft, Clive Barker, Joss Whedon, China Mieville
Tools of the Trade
knives, flesh, chalk, time and the marrow of the mind
Other Interests
occult & esoterica, gaming (video, tabletop, board)
