I find it amusing that I would end up making puppets again. I didn’t think this is where my art would take me when I first moved to Portland to become a professional graphic designer. Now years later here I am learning how to piece together foam and fleece and come up with funny voices.
This website is a combination of 20 years of me trying to “figure my life out” and “get back to being creative”. It’s been a journey of many ups and downs. I am still struggling to hold on to my inner child and not let my dream diminish. The dream is simple now - I just want to make art and be happy. The goal is self-fulfilling - when I make art - I am happy.
I am an introvert and a sensitive soul. I spend most of my days hiding away working on my projects. Oh my do I have a lot of projects! I love drawing, painting, sculpture, sewing, costume design, video editing, animation, and I could go on and on!
This website is a peek into my world. I want to share the things that bring a smile to my face. I hope my work brings a little joy into your life as well.
