Chris “Slickbald” Andre began working and tooling leather in Longmont Colorado at age 6, working with his parents on the farm. Doing very well with the craft in 4-H, Chris took his tools with him into the Marine Corps in 1985, carving when he could. Going full time in 2011, training with several Masters, he has since won many awards with his work. Having worked primarily in heavily carved Cowboy Action gun leather, Chris also makes all manners of leather items from spur straps to saddles, including door, cabinet, and upholstery panels. As long as he can carve it!
