With a BA from the University of Pittsburgh, I thought I had found my niche in painting, until I touched leather. Working in leather allows me to translate my training in 2-dimensional art into 3-dimensional leather art. Being a fabric artist has different freedoms than painting; it’s an addictive process in a very unforgiving medium. I see designs in my leather, as I see ideas on a blank canvas. Crisscrossing ideas of colors and designs make up the foundation of my business. The organic edges and qualities of full grain hides inspire my designs which are dynamic and always evolving. All bags are designed and made by me, under the name of Luna Jaze. Art isn’t a choice, it's a gift.
