Bought this puppet for my sister. She really loved it. Well built and a great puppet for the price.


Making objects come to life

I have been making artworks all my life, but started building puppets professionally in 2009. For me, puppetry is the creative glue that fuses together all my passion for music, art, film, performance and children’s entertainment.

Over the years puppetry has not just become a passion or a way of making a living - it has become a way of life. One that I am more than happy to share with the world in the hope it can bring someone a fraction of the joy that has brought me.

I've had the great privilege to train with puppeteers from all over the world to learn all the different aspects, styles and techniques the craft, such as Jim Kroupa (who built all the original Muppets), Phillip Huber (who did the puppetry in Being John Malkovich), and several other world-class artists.

I have worked in the USA and Australia and have received funding and created projects for the Sesame Street Workshop (New York), ArtsACT, CAPO, National Museum of Australia, ACT NOWaste and more.
