Modern day Geppetto

I got the love for unusual characters and figures from my mother who also showed me the basics of how to sculpt. I started creating figures out of clay and paper mache since I was a young teen. The moment where it all happened (as I am going to dedicate myself to this) was after I watched the movie the "Labyrinth" with David Bowie. I became fascinated by the look of the outlandish creatures and it certainly made a click in my soul. Much later in my life and already a doll maker by profession, I was asked to join a freelance studio that built prototypes for major toy companies as well as props for movies. This experience really helped define my style as well as improved the look and finish of my work greatly.

I prefer sculpting cartoonish exagerated features that even though they are familiar they are far from being real. My style is friendly and edgy at the same time, a definite intention is to give you the sense that my pieces have a brain and a strong personality, and in the very least they will make you feel, and hopefully crack a smile :-)

I make my work for those who share a love for the unique, that also like to surround themselves with objects that will help them remember stories of happy times, and that will spark their compassion and empathy. My pieces are a celebration of how cool it is to be out of the box and free.

I have been self employed doing what I love for over 20 years, all thanks to the people who connect with my pieces and that have helped me fuel the drive to be better and make the most of what I can give.

Thanks for being here and reading this!

Shop policies

Welcome to my world!
Every piece displayed in my shop is an original design, hand-crafted entirely using materials that are also often dyed and felted by hand. The characters take shape as I sculpt, and in most cases I do not know what the outcome will be. I prefer using mediums such as polymer clay, resin, epoxy clay, paper mache and cloth. The bodies are built with a wire armature inside to allow them to change positions. they are versatile and can be displayed sitting, hanging upside down, sometimes standing, or holding your favorite objects. They are not toys, but collectables that are meant to be enjoyed for many years. They are signed and dated behind the head or a part of their body and also they come with a signed certificate, explaining their name and personality traits, as well as the materials used for that particular character. They take between 3 days to 6 weeks for one character to be completed. Ask me about collectors discounts!
