Maker of one of a kind stuffed animals from repurposed materials.
I've been making animals since 2007, first just for friends and family. It's now an addiction. I strive to use all the little scraps I hoard away and just what's on hand. I strip down my plush designs to their essential forms-employing a limited amount of moves to render each animal's essential characteristics.
I often catch a glimpse of a face in the folds of fabric and then the rest follows. I am attracted to simple sculptural forms and clean lines, but I enjoy the oddities too. Inspiration comes from all around -nature, architecture, fashion design, fine art and an occasional misshapen vegetable.
