CreativeCritters' Profile

I have been an artist since I was child with my first lump of Play Doh. I have always enjoyed working with clay and discovered polymer clay in my late teens. I love animals, nature, and the world of fantasy and this is reflected in my sculptures. I also enjoy a large variety of crafts, and like to try new things. Several years ago I started making cloth dolls, which have been a huge hit with my nieces and friend's children. I even had one of my dolls featured in "Today's Creative Home Arts". The dolls make wonderful gifts for children or doll collectors. I make jewelry with polymer clay, jewelry findings and pieces, and a variety of beads. I'm inspired by bold colors and interesting shapes. I also make very detailed miniature polymer clay houses surrounded with beautiful landscaping. One of my log cabins was featured in the October 2008 issue of Polymer Cafe magazine. Fantasy has always lighted a creative spark in me, and many of my sculptures sprang into life with that spark. Fairies, wizards, gnomes, trolls, and dragons have all been sculpted over the course of my artistic career. "Scorch the Rockin' Dragon" was featured in the February 2009 issue of Polymer Cafe magazine. I also sculpt custom wedding cake toppers and have created several cake toppers for World of Warcraft players. I try to put as much detail as possible into my work, and spend many hours getting it "just right". On top of that I make catnip toys stuffed with my own organic catnip. I also strive very hard to provide excellent customer service and communication. I try to use recycled materials as well- everything has a use! I never throw out clothing, old purses, or trinkets that could be turned into something new.
