Peter Main got his start in graphic design in Sydney, Australia. After 25 years in graphic design, in 1995 he immersed himself in his art and taught himself leather design, artistry and construction. He has made everything from delicate jewelry to cases to boots, and has mastered the arts of fine hand-sewing, text on leather, and coloring. Peter has diligently instructed others in these skills for decades. In 1999, Ann Stohlman presented Peter with the Al Stohlman Award for Achievement in Leathercraft.
