Life is about fulfilling your dreams

True Confession - Roping was my first love.  My Dad had a roping arena in our back yard when I was a very small child, and I can still remember being completely taken with the cowboys and their roping skills. NFR qualifier Doyle Gellerman roped at our place as a teenager, and I couldn't imagine a better sport to participate in.  Roping still calls me, but it shares my heart with carving leather, which I have pursued with more focus over my lifetime.  My desire to share the beauty of carved leather on products both functional and beautiful, and beyond...

"Josie and the Outlaw"

"Josie and the Outlaw" have become the central figures in our "Women of the West" series.  Here's a little back story of how it all began.....

IT'S RODEO TIME!

IT'S RODEO TIME!

Whether you are out on the range behind a herd of cows or stepping down into a bucking chute at a rodeo, the only thing you can know for sure is that the actions of the horse under you cannot be guaranteed. That unpredictability has created a lot of wild scenes over the years and gives us a lot of mental images to turn into artwork.  Hence, you will often see one of those ranch horses having a "come apart" as the subject of many leather carvings.  We chose to reproduce those carved scenes into highly detailed prints on these handsome...
