This is the second piece I have purchased from this artist and I love the little details. Unfortunately the small skull bead under her chin popped off in shipping but I was able to glue it back on - hope it holds!

She is gorgeous. She is even prettier than her photo. I bought this as a gift but I may not be able to part with her.

Arrived on time 100% as pictured & described; only looking even MORE adorable when seen in person! :-) This masterpiece sculpture will forever be a treasure of a roommate in my home.

First I have to say Kimberly is one of my most favorite artist, she has done several custom Alice in Wonderland inspired pieces for my room and I could not be happier. Now to the Genie in the Bottle, I love him he is well crafted and just makes me smile, if you are considering one of her other Genie's do not hesitate to buy one you will never regret it!

As I said before, she is gorgeous. Thank you!
Traditional beginnings lead to magical creatures
I have always loved making beautiful things and have been fortunate to spend time working in various artistic professions. I have been a make-up artist, fashion and bridal designer, and experimented with as many different artistic mediums as I could get my hands on since childhood. I originally started my business working in bonded bronze with a distinct classical style. Over the years I realized I wanted to have more fun and variety with my work and I found that polymer and paper clay seemed to be the perfect mediums. Once I found I could incorporate all of my past interests and professions in a singular character there was no looking back. Fourteen years ago I modeled my first piece which opened the door to an entirely new artistic path. The world of elves, fairies and magical creatures has been a big influence with children in my house. These stories and characters have the ability to appeal to all ages, incorporating all seasons. I wanted to bring a little of that magic into my work and soon my world of the Griffinwyse was born. Inspired by my daughters' great imaginations and the fantastic books and movies we enjoy together, my characters can be and do anything. They combine my love of possibilities, imagination and provide the variety of work I love. On any given day I can dream up a creature, sculpt it, paint, experiment with photographs, or write for my blog and Facebook page. I enjoy the flexibility of my work and I hope my characters spread a little of that fun and inspiration wherever they go.
I am a life-long artist and proud mother of three beautiful girls. I am lucky to be surrounded by my muses every day and to do something I love for a living.
