About

I'm a mixed media artist who loves creating seasonal art!

I am a mixed media artist and I love creating seasonal art. I sculpt with a variety of materials and incorporate found artifacts and vintage items of all sorts. I sculpt year round, doing licensing work and fun side projects that I put on Etsy.com. I enjoy making special order santas when time allows! Each piece I make is hand sculpted (without the use of molds) in my St. Louis studio.

I have a couple of unusual influences that helped my business develop. My love for vintage holiday came from growing up with parents who were each artists and collectors of antiques. I started making Halloween and Christmas decorations for family members. I found myself using my degree in Physical Anthropology as I worked, because having studied human facial structures helps Santa's faces take form. My previous career as a retail Market Representative helps me understand the development and retail side of the business, and what is required to go to market. I'm proud to have combined each of these elements into a creative career!

Dolls Magazine featured some of my One of a Kind Santa figures in their Holiday 2005 Issue. Each Santa begins with a hand sculpted face. Both new and vintage materials are used to achieve the desired look. Custom Santas can be made with unique themes, varied skin tones, and customized clothing. When complete, each piece is hand finished, signed, numbered, and dated. More time goes into each piece, but the effort insures that each will have a unique personality.

Inquiries for licensing or custom Santas are welcome, please contact us for more information.

    I'm an artist that works out of my St. Louis studio. My parents were collectors of antiques and vintage holiday items, and those memories continue to be a big influence in my art!
