Hand Sculpted Faeries and Enchanted Beings:
Years ago, I picked up some polymer clay and began to make figurines. Having been an artist all my life it was inevitable that I would start sculpting. It wasn’t until early 2002, however, that I tried polymer clay.
My very first completed faerie was a bald, fat, naked man with a comb-over, who resembled an uncle of mine. And that is how it all began. Every single piece I create is a one of a kind work of art. I couldn’t duplicate a piece if I tried. Facial features are hand painted with fine acrylics. I use natural and synthetic embellishments. Most have wings, but some do not. Orphaned Dragon Eggs created with natural Gemstones and Healing Crystals are my latest creation; and all of my work comes with certificates of authenticity, signed by me. I also create Portrait Sculptures from your photographs!
It wasn’t until 2007 that I began my journey into the Renaissance Festival world. And not until 2008 did I venture out to that magical place we know and love, called the Texas Renaissance Festival. I love my faire, I love my patrons… come visit me in Pirates’ Cove in my amazing faerie house across from the Funnel Cakes Booth! Even if you walk out with nothing in
your hands, it is always a pleasure to meet new people and learn about their experiences. Early mornings and later afternoons give more time to chatting — but stop by any time! Booth 509!
