“Born and raised in PA, I love the mountain west and have called it home since my family moved to WY in 2014. We transplanted to Colorado Springs in 2020.
I have always loved to create, but my love for leatherwork was born in 2018 when my sister-in-law and I worked together to design some jewelry pieces. I realized how much I love to work with leather, and I began selling my pieces to friends and family. After having success with several Maker Markets, I got into a boutique featuring local artists. When we relocated to CO last year, I was excited that 45 Degree was willing to display my work.
