Serina Lee began playing with leather in 2009. She is self taught as there was no one in the area to learn from. In 2015 she attended her first trade show in Prescott, AZ (the Southwest Leather Workers Trade Show) and took every single workshop that time would allow for!! That show, the workshops, and instructors changed her whole leather life! “I no longer felt alone in the leather world and it is a great feeling!” Serina continues to grow and learn by taking workshops when she can. She also teaches workshops at her home, at the Southwest Leather Workers Trade Show and at the Rocky Mountain Leather Trade Show. Serina lives on her small farm/ranch with her husband of nearly 35 years, their horses, dogs, chickens, and a cat!
