About the Artist
Tiger Torre, the artist behind Tiger Torre Art, knew she wanted to be an artist at a young age. From early sketches, to refining her skills in art classes, Tiger has always loved to create. She has worked in multiple mediums, from clay to jewelry, from canvas to leather. In 1996, Tiger made her first leather mask, and she fell in love with the medium. She studied books from her local library on leather molding techniques, and practiced with scads of vegetable tanned leather. She made masks and crowns for herself and for friends, and still has her first leather mask displayed on her wall.
