Misfits and Oddities
I sketch, make pen and ink drawings and sew, but what I enjoy most is making creatures. I started making creatures when I was 13 and they have evolved since then. I sculpt them out of an oven bake clay, bake them, and then paint them. I hinge the joints so they move more freely and look more lifelike. Recently I have been making marionettes and am trying to figure out how to hinge a jaw. My source of inspiration comes from movies and books such as Pan’s Labyrinth, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Corpse Bride, Beetlejuice, Grimm’s fairy tales, The Graveyard Book, and Alice in Wonderland. I’m a fan of Guillermo Del Toro, Tim Burton, and Wes Anderson.
