Making Peculiar Pals for Playful People

I started making puppets in 2012 and have been obsessed ever since. I start out with a character idea or a certain color or texture I want to work with and then I run with it. My studio is located in Oakland, CA and I am constantly inspired by my large selection of colorful fabrics and materials.
When I started Paisley's Puppets I decided to challenge myself and make a puppet a day. I succeeded in making 31 different puppets that month including some aliens and monsters, a chicken, a wolf, and two bats! Now it's an annual challenge for me.
I also make people look-alike puppets. I have made many of these custom puppets for weddings or gifts. The people receiving them are blown away by how much they resemble the person. I truly enjoy fabricating the features of the face and adding all the details that make the person a unique character of their own.
My main goal is to spread the love of puppetry far and wide. Just making people smile is what counts the most.

    I've been sewing for over 20 years and now can't stop making puppets. It's my passion! My puppet creations are wacky cute, kinda twisted, and full of their own charm. I also make charactature portraits in puppet form, and many other fun things.
