I am a self employed, freelance artist and owner of Gypsy Cat Studios since 2007 GypsyCatStudios.com
I am a mixed Media Sculptor with an emphasis on textiles. My love of textiles came from my background in costume design, theatrical props, mascots and a lifetime of sewing crafts and making costumes for my children.
I earned Bachelors Degree in Fine Art from Columbus College of Art and Design, 2007, where I majored in Sculpture but also took extensive classes in Fashion Design and Creature Creation.
I continued on to earning my Masters Degree in San Francisco in Fine Art Sculpture, 2013. It was there that I further developed my skills in Textile Sculpture. My final show consisted of a series of mixed media textile sculptures based on human/animal behavior similarities and can be viewed on my website GypsyCatStudios.com.
I am a Mother and Grandmother and animal advocate striving to set an example with my art of not only living in harmony , being cruelty free in my work, but caring for the planet I am leaving behind. I continue to use more upcycled supplies and also create my own environmentally friendly applications.
