I feel I have somthing to offer, in spite of how I was treated, for what half of me is. I’m willing to teach any what I know, especially youngsters.

From what I’ve been told from other artists as of 11/2003, from 17 states, my soft leather work is the best they have seen. For example, my last four purses sold for $500 to $850, all special orders. Basicly because I use NO paterns. I draw a picture, a rough scetch on one plain piece of paper which is a picture in my head.

I’m willing to teach any what I know, especially youngsters. Whatever I make comes from the inside out and the way in which I was brought up, which is now like a ghost life that has faded away. This hurts my heart. So, I offer to teach what I know, and hope it helps.
