About My Art
I create OOAK Polymer clay & Mixed Media Figurative Sculptures and Artdolls.
My creations are inspired largely by the horror & fantasy genres, as well as stories from folklore & mythology. I love monsters, cryptids, classic sideshow & freakshow aesthetic, and of course anything Halloween!
My sculptures are completely handmade originals. Everything is hand-crafted and created by me, from sculpting, painting, cutting & sewing clothing, cutting and hand-laying hair, making accessories, props, etc. 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 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!
Horror fan turned artist...
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 a 15-month training program in the artistry/trade of Special Makeup Effects. While taking some beginner sculpting classes, I discovered my knack and passion for sculpting and soon thereafter fell in love with Polymer clay.
I initially approached this “career change” with plans to get into the SFX business, to perhaps get a job in a props shop, amusement park, haunt, or become a makeup artist for horror movies.
But in mid 2017, I decided to follow my dream of creating art as a full-time independent artist and maker, and commit fully to the path of fine art.
As of 2020, I am continuing to hone my sculpture & dollmaking craft and learning/experimenting with new artistic endeavors including colored pencil art, gouache/watercolor, acrylic & oil painting.
I am currently based in Arizona and besides working one on one with clients & collectors creating custom pieces, I am enjoying taking part in occasional art shows & conventions.
