Creatures Characters & Beasts! Or, There Must Be More to Life
After a long career as a children's book artist and illustrator I began to feel restless and decided to take the art off the page and into three dimensions.
I began sculpting ornaments and figures with no art director but me and no direction but my own instincts and passions.
After I crafted a group that I considered worthy I opened my Etsy shop in September of 2010.
The response was overwhelming, so I have barreled forth, creating these creatures, characters and beasts with enthusiasm and love. I look forward to every day of making art, often working late into the night with a new idea that I can't tear myself away from.
In less than two years things have really taken off for me and the creatures. I have my work in galleries across the country (including the Metropolitan Opera Shop), I've won a Niche award and have been published. I've been so fortunate to discover another new opportunity; I teach workshops across the United States and next year internationally.
Etsy started it all and I try to nurture my shop to make it a visual treat and a satisfying experience for my visitors!
Owner, Designer & Everything Else
Inspired by story books and the animal kingdom, I create my creatures & characters with love & care. I was thrilled to be a 2011 Niche Award Winner. The award recognizes unique creative thought and excellence in craftsmanship! www.doreenkassel.com
