 James "Wes" is a leatherworker, saddlemaker, and gear maker, with more than 20 years of experience. Born in Arizona, he was then raised in Wyoming and Nevada where he graduated high school.

Over two decades later, Mastic has become an accomplished custom saddlemaker himself, now residing in Amarillo, TX. He has won numerous awards for his leather craftsmanship, including the Best of Show at the Trapping of Texas event multiple times. He has built custom saddles in several states, including South Dakota, Wyoming, Idaho and New Mexico. In addition, Mastic makes his own stamping tools and flower-carving tools at home.
