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.

I watched the first disc today. Fantastic! I already can think of three or four things I am going to change in my next pouch.
Also - you are very good teacher. You present the information in a linear manner in that you don't jump around from tip to tip.
You give one instruction or statement - then follow up with an example or demonstration, and each step builds upon the previous step.
Another point I want to make is that the DVD is a very good value. There are no other sources of information such as your DVD. There is no substitute for actually seeing the steps "in action".
Looking forward to finishing the second disc in the next couple days.
I hope you make a lot of sales- you did a really great job!
