About Me

I am an artist whose work has an intensely historical, even biographical concept to it. I see the objects that I paint through the eyes of a 18th century artist and craftsman. My goal as an artist is to create every item with an historical past with an aged look and feel to it. I made a pouch for the Leonardo DeCaprio movie, The Revenant" as well as the pouch for Billie Bob Thornton (Davey Crockett) for the movie The Alamo, and also provided other props for this movie. Early American Life magazine thrice named me one of the top craftsmen in America for both my paintings and my leatherwork.. My pouches were rated for their quality workmanship, fidelity to period design and construction techniques by judges expert in museum-quality antiques and fine, high-end reproductions. My work has also been featured in videos, tv documentaries and numerous times in magazines and on their covers. Thank you for visiting my blog.

Again, this year, as for many years in the past, I will be teaching at the ARTS & ARMS MAKING WORKSHOP at Conner Prairie.

This is a great opportunity to learn how I make a hunting pouch. By the end of this 2 1/2 day class, you should be able to walk out with a finished Hunting Pouch using my instruction. During the class, My teaching will include pattern development, applying the pattern to the leather, cutting the leather, sewing AND... How I antique a pouch and make it look old.
