Leather Jacket Artwork

The Leather Artwork I produce is high quality, near photorealistic and very durable as the paint I use is designed specifically for leather products; it is waterproof and resistant to petrol, oil, diesel, household cleaners etc.

If you are interested in commissioning your own artwork on your own jacket, waistcoat or handbag, see the 'Commissions' page for details on how to start the ball rolling.  I cannot create artwork on suede leather jackets or faux leather jackets.  

The jackets and waistcoats offered for sale below with my own designs and compilations are portfolio pieces which I take to shows and events.
