I strive to create beautiful, exquisitely-crafted pieces of functional art. Ideally, with wear, these pieces will continue to evolve into another tale as the one who loves them leaves the indelible marks of time and use.
Boots have always been a visual symbol of strength in the history of
footwear, as well as functional apparel with specific purpose.
These FIRST Boots mark my foray into the beauty of the boot-making tradition, the sturdiness of
construction, the honesty of the process, and the story each pair of
boots tells: that of the maker, the inspiration, the long history of
tradition, and the owner for whom they are made.
