About my art ~
I create OOAK Polymer clay & Mixed Media Figurative Sculptures and Artdolls. 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.
My creatures are inspired largely by the horror & fantasy genres, as well as stories from folklore & mythology.
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.
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.
In 2016, hungry for a change and new direction in my life, I decided to put a decade long career aside to pursue training in the artistry of Special Makeup Effects. That same year, while taking a few beginner sculpting classes, I discovered my knack and passion for sculpting and soon thereafter fell in love with Polymer clay.
In 2017, I decided to follow my dream of creating my own art as a full-time independent artist and maker.
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.
As of 2020, I am continuing to hone my sculpture craft and learning/experimenting with new artistic endeavors including colored pencil art, gouache/watercolor, acrylic & oil painting. I am also putting more time & dedication into my lifelong love of art photography.
I am currently based in Arizona and take part in occasional art shows & conventions throughout the Western United States.
