Super cute. The PDF printed out nice and clear. The classroom loved this book mark and asked for more from my granddaughter...who gave them out with books in World Book Day

For me, I always start my sculptures with the face. It can take hours & sometimes days until I find the right parts to make just the right expression. The Tin Woodman really tugs at my heart just like my favourite movie The Wizard of Oz,
I loved designing these vintage styled robot blueprints which I added words of encouragement for kids & the big kid in all of us! Set of 3, printable diy.
For Back to School, I'm excited to throw at 20% off sale for the next 24 hours on all Digital Downloads. Robots prints, teacher bookmarks, paper puppets and more! Full of encouragement quotes for kids! Enjoy!

About

Welcome to my studio

I was born a creator and builder. While my artistic life may have started in a way familiar to most crayon-wielding preschoolers, my art has evolved to a place where I now claim it as my passion. My professional career started with children’s illustration and art licensing, but my current endeavours now have me immersed in various forms of 3D sculptures and assemblage art, including my found object robots built using reclaimed industrial items and rusty metals.

At age 3, my son sat beside me in the studio and proceeded to draw a little robot. Now, 15 years later, that little drawing is still proudly displayed in the studio and jump started my love for creating robots.

Much of my studio time is now dedicated to building steampunk art, retro styled robots, and other whimsical characters, using a variety of unique mediums including found objects and treasures such as rusty metals and aged tins I've collected for decades.

“I’m in creative heaven. For years, my sketchbooks were filled with dreamt-up vintage styled robots, birds wearing funky steam-punk top hats, and old world characters. It is here and now, as I make them come to life in my “laboratory,” that I feel most awake as an artist and creator.”

I place high-value on every component of my work, and no small piece is ever an after-thought: “I love rust and any item that is already rusty. Right away, it has a story to tell, a human history. It’s part of the appeal for me; like how a weathered and worn toy looks well loved, as opposed to the cold veneer of a brand new shiny one.”

Thank you for dropping in my SHOP. I hope my robots and characters make you SMILE!
