Check it out! Art Zone With Nancy Guppy @azwithnancyguppy @azwithnancyg ( a local tv show about the Seattle art scene ) did a piece about me.
Hit me up for all your puppet needs. I am accepting commissions for puppets, masks, sculptures and more! You can hire me to perform puppet shows at your event or festival. Do you need a really special installation? I create strange and wonderful installations out of broken bicycles, creepy dolls, goat bones & rusty saws. Hire me to paint a mural, or work with your community and kids to create your own mural. I write, design, build, perform and direct shows. I make drawings and comics. I work with communities to create large scale parades and pageants about themselves. I teach workshops in all these things. How can I help you?
