About the Artist


Cowboy Boots and I were love at first sight.

Now they are my muse and the canvases of my wearable art.

I delight in fading the traditional "style boundaries" between Western, Bohemian and Santa Fe to bring you something distinctive, adventurous and stunning.

Express yourself in a beautiful way, unique to you. Because you are Worth. Every. Cent.

What have I been up to?

As you may know I have been selling my bags for 12 years and the last 7 on-the-road at Fine Art and Western Shows. I recently opened a brick n mortar in my hometown of Wickenburg AZ where I sell my Cowboy Boot Purses and Reclaimed/Up-crafted Rescue Furniture.
