I have worked for many years as a commercial sculptor in a wide variety of applications within the toy, collectibles, and entertainment/film industries. I am comfortable working with a wide range of style (from sculpting animation characters and toys, to realistic portraiture, animals, and fantasy creatures), of scale (from microminiature to over life-size), and of media (oil-, polymer- , and water-base clays, waxes, rigid foams, etc.).

SKILLS I am adept at modeling with a wide range of media such as Sculpey, waxes, and clays; or carving in rigid foams etc. I am comfortable working in any scale from micro-miniature to monumental. I am especially experienced with capturing the look and feel of animation characters, but enjoy realistic sculpting and portraiture. I can also do model-building, mold making, casting and finishing; as well as some painting, costuming, making puppets and puppetry (SAG-AFTRA member), and floral arranging.
