About Russ Fawson

Russ Fawson has been tooling leather and making leather items since he was a child. Under master saddlemaker Jim Kelly's expert mentoring Russ expanded his natural abilities to the craft of western saddle making. Russ has discovered a love for building saddles and accessories designed specifically to suit the needs and tastes of his customers. He enjoys most making old west replica saddles, holsters and saddlebags. Russ’ wife Becky, an accomplished artist, often designs the tooling patterns for his saddles.

Russ enjoys the outdoors, guns and horseback riding with friends. From John Wayne to ghost towns, Russ has always loved anything that conveys a spirit of the old west. His love for the old west, animals and the beauties of nature are reflected in his leather work and oil paintings.

Russ enjoys time with his family. He and his wife have 5 children and a growing number of grandchildren. When he is not in his saddle shop or working on an oil painting he can often be found camping with his family, cooking up a dutch oven dinner or playing with his grandchildren.
