About my art

I create OOAK Mixed Media Figurative Sculptures and Artdolls. My creatures are inspired largely by the horror and fantasy genres, as well as stories from folklore, mythology and gothic literature.

My sculptures are completely handcrafted originals, I do not make molds, casts or copies/recreations of my sculptures, and therefore each one I make is truly One of a Kind.

 

I work mainly in professional grade polymer clay, but also enjoy utilizing air dry and epoxy clay.

I use a combination of airbrushing and hand painting with acrylic paints/inks, and I always use 100% Vegan materials, meaning I never use any fabrics or fibers from animals.

I work mostly in 1/6 scale or smaller, but I like to remain versatile when it comes to size and project inspirations.

My creatures have been described as pleasantly creepy, surprisingly cute & oddly whimsical. 

I enjoy creating original works as well as homage art pieces, and am always excited to work with a client to bring their favorite monster or character to life!

 

 

A little about me...

Ever since I was a child I have felt a special kinship with creatures, a love for monsters and an attraction to the fantastical and otherworldly side of things. Over my formative years I developed a strong affinity towards horror and dark fantasy films, movie monsters, ghost stories, exploring cemeteries and historically creepy or abandoned places, haunted attractions and anything Halloween. 

 

It was a vacation to New Zealand in 2015, and a tour of the renowned sfx company Weta Workshop, that sparked an artistic desire deep inside of me and revealed my life’s true creative "aha!" moment of ambition.

After returning home from that trip, I decided to take the plunge, put a decade long career aside and pursue an education at the Tom Savini’s Special Makeup Effects Program. It is there that I found my knack and passion for sculpting, and after graduating from that program in 2017, I decided to pursue creating my own art as an independent maker full-time.

 

Now, I exist in my own little fantasy world, full of creature and monster friends, and I feel so fortunate to be able to share them with the world. 

I currently live in Texas with my husband and our two fur-kids.  I'm inspired every day.
