Welcome to Dawn Mountain LeatherArt

Every original Leatherart piece is designed and created by me. I began using leather as an art medium in 1978, putting designs on leather clothing and handbags. Something about the feel, smell, and durability of leather has always attracted me.

All my designs start with a pencil and paper. It is necessary to make a pattern from my artwork so it can be chalked on to the leather as a cutting guide. Decorative techniques such as trapunto, pleating, weaving, and beading are frequently used on my one-of-a-kind pieces. The end result is then framed or mounted around a steel ring.
