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.

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!

As of 2020, I am continuing to hone my current craft and learning/experimenting with new artistic endeavors including colored pencil art, watercolor, acrylic & oil painting.

 

 

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 2015, 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. While taking a few beginner sculpting classes in 2016, 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. 

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