Additional Info


Construction Management major, BYU. Artist statement: "Using this unique medium of leather, I was able to capture the Savior's hope, His faith and His infinite love for us. This piece was created using self taught leather tooling techniques that I acquired studying western "cowboy style" leather decorative art, as well as Celtic techniques for storytelling carvings. With the detailed texture and warmth of the leather. there is palpable closeness that is unlike any other medium. This piece was inspired by Dan Wilson's painting - Look To God And Live."
