Update as of August 2023: *Teaching Puppetry and Puppet Making at OSU *Creating giant shark animatronic for a Putt Putt course in CA * creating 2 commissioned GIANT stage sized costumes for a designer in NYC to go to Phoenix AZ. *will be teaching textile sculpture in Nov at my new studio in Columbus. (available to teach it anywhere travel is paid) I am adjusting where I spend my time and energy more into my own artwork, professional price commissions and teaching and travel/work. I am no longer accepting full show costume work. That being said, I WILL consider commissioned custom giant or odd pieces that are my specialty or puppets, or tricky props if a professional price budget is available. Currently I am creating a 30 ft cloak and a giant wearable flower for stage for a NYC designer as a commission (not unlike the tentacle skirt I created for Nina West as Ursula the Sea witch) I have also been travelling to Denver CO and the next 5 weeks to San Jose CA where I have made a giant black light shark puppet (animatronic, but those parts not made by me, but I have to adapt and build around them and their functions). I have also created and molded dozens of other sea life for the project and will soon be going to construct and sculpt the exhibit walls which are to look like lava rock. ( I will use my experience from creating zoo exhibits for the animals at Cinci Zoo here!) I will send out the first ever email list in October and start teaching Puppetry and puppet making at Ohio State University Fall Semester. I have changed studios after 9 years in Columbus Ohio and I always have my home studio here as well. I am always looking for more travel/work helping with art shows, teaching, workshops, or just an extra skilled artist needed in your studio for a short period of time I am available at hourly or daily rates with flight and Air Bnb paid. I am solidly booked until nov 1 and taking my fave Halloween and most of November for myself. Thank You all for your continued support and I hope to be showing you new work and having MY work for sale on here and my Etsy shop as soon as I can! send me a message to be put on my email list for updates ! I have not sent out the very firt one yet, probably Nov and it will never be more than 1 a month or spam.
