Growing up as a member of a family of makers, where working wit ones hands was valued. I was drawn to leatherwork in high school. It became my medium of choice because of its tactile nature, color variation, and the functionality of the work made.
I began to show and sell my work professionally in 1979 and did show at many national shows. I continue to enjoy this medium, and designing in asymmetrical shapes. The colors and textures still inspire me as I design new pieces this many years into the craft.
We look forward to seeing Richard Davis Adirondack Designs at the Chico ART Festival, at St John’s Episcopal Church grounds on Floral Avenue, in Chico, on May 6 & 7, 2022. Friday from 4pm to 8 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm.
